Honey-roasted carrots with tahini drizzle

Adding honey before roasting results in caramelised, sweet and sticky carrots but to take them to new heights of deliciousness, drizzle them with tahini. The savoury, nutty taste balances the sweetness of the carrots beautifully.

How long will it take?

1 hour

What’s the serving size?

What do I need?
