Happy almost-December everyone! These Roasted Spicy Honey Carrots With Yogurt Parsley Sauce were inspired by a few different recipes in the Gjelina Cookbook (one of the most beautiful and flavourful cookbooks I own + one that would make a great holiday gift!!) As much as I love that cookbook for inspiration, many of the meals are quite elaborate. If you know me, I’m all about simple easy dishes, and these roasted carrots are just that!

A delicious side dish for your next holiday gathering, the spicy honey gives a unique flavor to the roasted carrots, while the yogurt parsley sauce provides a refreshing contrast. It tastes best served immediately, but if making ahead, be sure to keep the carrots separate from the sauce so that the carrots can be reheated. I hope you guys enjoy this one!
