Look at how pretty these roasted Rainbow Carrots With Tahini Sauce are! They are roasted just until tender on the outside and slightly crunchy on the inside. A perfect sweet, savory, super delicious side dish that comes together in 30 minutes. These roasted  rainbow Carrots are a prefect side dish for Thanksgiving. I also love to make it with Baked Salmon or Pan Seared Salmon with Garlic Butter.

Ingredients for Rainbow Carrots with Tahini Sauce

  • Rainbow carrots. If you can’t find rainbow carrots, you can use thin orange carrots. Try to pick ones that are similar in size so they cook evenly. 
  • Salt and pepper to taste. A few pinches is enough. 
  • Olive oil.
  • Tahini sesame paste. A delicious, nutty, and gluten-free paste.
  • Lemon juice.
  • Garlic clove. Crushed

Rainbow Carrots:

They taste pretty much the same as regular orange carrots, they’re just so much prettier! Its hard to find them at all grocery stores, but when I do, I always grab them. I like to buy mine with the leaves attached on top, but that’s only because it looks better with pictures. With tops on them, or without, they’ll still be delicious!
