Sweet Chili-Glazed Carrots
A quick side dish that tastes amazing and goes with a variety of dishes. Serve with roasted or grilled meats, fish, or as part of a vegetarian dinner spread.
For Roasting the Carrots
- 2 lbs carrots peeled, cut into 1in pieces
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3-4 drops sesame oil
For the Glaze
- 1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp ginger paste
- 2 tsp garlic minced
- 3 stems green onion green parts only, sliced thinly at an angle
Roast the Carrots
Preheat the oven to 400 and put your baking sheet in the oven as it preheats. Toss the carrots, olive oil and sesame oil.
Once the oven has heated and the baking sheet has heated for an additional 5 minutes, dump the carrots onto the baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes, shaking gently every 5 minutes, until you see dark spots starting to develop.
Make the Glaze
Whisk together the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, ginger paste and minced garlic.
Finish the Dish
Once the carrots come out of the oven, set them aside. Pour the glaze into a pan on the stove over medium heat. Once the glaze really starts to bubble, add the carrots and toss around to coat. Add the green onion and toss together again. Serve warm.
