When grilling out the menu is often meat-heavy with not many plants invited to the party. Some awesome black bean/veggie patties like our Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Burger and Mesquite Black Bean Burger can help incorporate plants into the main course, but what about the appetizers and sides?
These glazed and grilled sriracha honey carrots are perfect for just that! There’s a nice spicy bite, balanced with the perfect amount of sweetness.
Special occasions and get-togethers don’t have to equate to a plate full of animal products and processed foods. Often times I find that it doesn’t take any extra time or effort to offer a whole, plant-based option and people are typically appreciative of the variety and the healthy options.
These carrots aren’t just for grill-friendly days. They can also be roasted in the oven. Simply coat with the sauce, place on a parchment-lined back sheet and let the oven do the work. For temperature and time details, see the recipes notes.
