Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb sweet potatoes 2 medium ones
  • 1 lb carrots 2 large ones
  • salt pepper and cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons honey divided
  • 2 tablespoons coconut or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce tamari or coconut aminos
  • 2 teaspoons sesame
  • sliced green onion

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Prepare a large baking sheet - I like to line mine with parchment for easier cleanup.
  2. Cut the sweet potato into 1/2 inch cubes and slice the carrot to 1/4 inch thick coins. Season with salt, pepper and a little cinnamon. Toss with 1 tablespoon honey and oil and roast for about 30 minutes. Toss half way through. For charred edges you can turn on the broiler for the last 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the remaining tablespoon of honey with soy sauce and stir into the roasted vegetables. Sprinkle with sesame and green onion.
