Sweet Ginger BBQ Carrots

BBQ Carrots make a healthy and flavorful side dish for any meal. 

30 minutes, 2-4 servings


  • 1/4 cup of Chef Adrienne Cheatham's Sweet Ginger BBQ Sauce
  • 1 bunch medium sized carrots with tops
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • Sliced scallions for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 400F. 
  2. Trim the tops of your carrots and leave about 1/4-inch of green at the top.
  3. Wash the carrots well under cold running water and use a towel or clean sponge to lightly rub any stubborn dirt on the skin and base of the green tops. 
  4. Place carrots in a mixing bowl and toss with salt, pepper, and oil.
  5. Lay the carrots on a foil-lined baking sheet and place in the oven, but keep the mixing bowl to toss the carrots again with the sauce later.
  6. Roast the carrots until blistered and tender, about 10-14 minutes. 
  7. Turn the oven off and return the carrots to the bowl, toss with the BBQ sauce to coat evenly and return to the foil-lined tray.
  8. Place in the oven again and let the residual heat bake the sauce onto the carrots, about 5-6 minutes. 
  9. Move to a serving plate and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and sliced scallion, serve while warm.
