One of my favorite, simple ways to get more veggies in your meals is to roast them. It will bring out depth of flavor, plus it’s so easy to throw a bunch of veg on a sheet tray, crank the oven to 375º F and let them go until they’re done, usually 25-45 minutes depending on the veg and how well you like them done.
Whenever my body is craving some fresh and simple, these roasted carrots with tahini sauce are always the first thing to come to mind. They never disappoint and have become my staple side dish for a good reason.

¼ cup tahini⠀
2 tbsp lemon juice⠀
2 tbsp red wine vinegar⠀

Cut the carrots in half lengthwise and lay them on a baking sheet.

While the carrots are roasting, combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
Drizzle the sauce over the roasted carrots and enjoy!
