Ginseng and Miso Glazed Roasted Carrots
2 Tbsp red or blonde miso paste
2 Tbsp butter
1.5 Tbsp honey
2 tsp ginseng powder*
6 full-size carrots, sliced lengthwise in half or quartered
In a small saucepan, whisk together miso paste, butter, honey, and ginseng powder until all ingredients melt together and form a thick sauce.
Lay sliced carrots on a parchment lined baking tray and drizzle miso sauce over top. Shuffle carrots around a bit so all pieces get coated with the sauce.
In a 400 F oven, roast for 25 minutes, checking about halfway through to rotate the carrots. When they are done, the carrots should be soft and slightly caramelized at the edges.
