  • Step 2 - Roast the Carrot Sticks

    Roast the Carrot Sticks

    Place carrot sticks on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, honey, and ¼ tsp. salt. Massage oil and honey into carrots. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until very tender and lightly charred, 25-30 minutes. While carrot roasts, make topping.

  • Step 3 - Prepare the Topping
