Roasted Carrots with Tahini

I’m not a fan of cooked carrots – too sweet and mushy…but then I saw these gorgeous tri-color guys and couldn’t resist buying them.  I realized if I roasted them myself, I could ensure they would be on the firmer side.  Problem: solved.

All the pretty colors

After shaving the carrots, I drizzled them with olive oil and dusted them with paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne.  Then I roasted them in a 425 oven for about 25 minutes.  When they came out, I covered them with tahini sauce (tahini, water, salt, and lemon if you’ve got it) and served with a side of hummus (optional).

Super healthy side dish alert!  It’s also good for potlucks because it tastes good at room temp and can be easily transported with the tahini in a separate container for dipping.
