The opposing flavors of sweet honey and flaky sea salt balance this beautiful side.
1 bunch purple carrots, ends trimmed
¼ cup olive oil
2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoons sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
Tomme, Grana or Parmesan cheese, for grating
1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil, thyme, bay and garlic. When the oil is hot, add the carrots and cook, tossing often, for 7 to 9 minutes, or until tender.
2. Taste for seasoning, then add the honey and coat the carrots, tossing a few times before transferring to a serving dish. Sprinkle the sea salt evenly on the carrots, making sure it sticks to the honey. Lastly, add a couple of twists of black pepper and grated cheese if desired.
