  1. This is so easy and sounds absolutely delicious! I’ve roasted carrots before but this is way faster. I love the idea of using ground ginger and maple syrup. I’ll have to serve this as a side soon 🙂

  2. I think you just saved the day! I was going to make my coffee roasted carrots per my dads request but forgot my seasonings. Pretty sure he’d like these and I’d eat these over my mom’s sugar glazed carrots.

  3. Yummmm…I love whole carrots cooked like this. These sound like they’d be really good made in the oven too. I love carrots with sweeter spices like ginger and cinnamon. SO GOOD.
