Ingredients

Carrots

  • 3 lb. carrots (peeled and sliced into thin, french fry sized pieces)
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. curry powder

Peanut Sauce

  • 1 cup lite coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Thai red curry paste (only 1/2 Tbsp. or less to make non-spicy)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce (or tamari if gluten free)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F (232°C).
  • Rub carrots with olive oil to coat. Sprinkle with salt and curry powder and rub spices onto carrots using your hands. Spread carrots out in a single layer on two baking sheets.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then stir/flip carrots and bake another 10 minutes or until fully cooked and starting to brown, but remove before burning.
  • While carrots are roasting, make peanut sauce in a small sauce pan. Combine all peanut sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat and bring to a low simmer.
  • Simmer while whisking or stirring continuously for about 5 minutes. Add additional water if needed to reach desired consistency and remove from heat.
  • Serve peanut sauce warm with carrots right away.

Notes

Store any leftover peanut sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in a small pan on the stove over low heat, adding additional water to replace water that evaporated when cooling. Do not use the microwave.
