Easy enough for a weeknight meal, but fancy enough to serve to guests, these sesame roasted carrots are the perfect side dish. Lovely served hot or cold.


  • 1 lb carrots, peeled, quartered and cut into 2 inch long pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon tamari
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Combine sesame oil, vinegar, tamari, black pepper and ginger in a large bowl. Add carrots and toss to coat.
  3. Place carrots on a baking sheet or stone. Roast for 35-40 minutes, stirring once about half-way through. Remove from oven when carrots are tender, crisp with golden edges. Sprinkle on sesame seeds and serve.
