This is a side-dish favorite that kids love. The roasting of the vegetables brings out a terrific sweetness that is brightened up with the fresh mint.
Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a mixing bowl, toss the carrot slices with the oil, salt, and pepper. Place the mixture on a sheet pan and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the carrots have caramelized and have turned brown in some spots. Remove from the heat and place in a medium-sized bowl. Toss with honey and mint.
