How to Make It


Preheat the oven to 425F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.


Zest the orange and set aside.


Slice the carrots on a diagonal into 2 inch pieces.


Place the carrots on the parchment lined baking sheet and toss with olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper. Spread the carrots out on the pan. Roast for 30-35 minutes, tossing after 20 minutes, until the carrots are tender and starting to caramelize.


Make the tahini sauce by whisking together the orange juice, tahini, garlic and salt and a pinch of pepper, whisk and taste. If you find the sauce too thick, add 2-3 tbsp water to loosen it.
