Slicing the carrots lengthwise gives them a distinctive look, while smoky spice balances their natural sweetness.

I left out the cilantro, which I don't care for. Delicious and easy! I didn't have quite enough carrots, so I roasted some asparagus in the same mixture. Also delicious!

I made these for a Thanksgiving potluck dinner, and received several compliments. It's also very easy recipe. The carrots I bought were not very uniform, so in addition to halving them lengthwise, I cut them into 3-inch lengths (and halved some of those lengthwise again); accordingly, the roasting time wasn't quite as long, maybe 18-20 minutes.

Terrific! These were sooooo good and addictive. I think I could have kept eating these these carrots until I burst. Next time, I'm doubling the recipe.

I let mine go in the oven a little longer since the thicker pieces looked not quite tender. Ended up going until they were a little crunchy, they tasted like deliciously healthy french fries. Will continue to make this and let them get a little crunchy!

I don't even really like carrots, but these were DELICIOUS! and so EASY! It was part of our Christmas Eve dinner. I will definitely make it again and again.
