  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil- un-toasted sesame oil or olive oil

Wash and scrub or peel the carrots but leave them whole…Or you can cut them into chunks if you prefer. Cut the madrases into wedges and keep one as juice that you squeeze over the carrots before putting them in the oven. Scatter the prunes whole or chop them smaller if you prefer.

Add everything to a baking dish and pour a little water in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle sea-salt, fresh ground pepper, rosemary and thyme.

Drizzle with un-toasted sesame oil. (You can use olive oil, but if you do, then bake the dish at 350 degrees max.)

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees and expect to have the carrots in for 45-60 minutes, depending on their size and how roasted you like them.

Every 15 min. add 1/4 cup of water to the baking dish.
