Makes 4 servings
Recipe inspired by Nami from Just One Cookbook


  • 1 pound of medium-large carrots
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp miso
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • Fresh thyme (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the carrots. Peel the carrots (optional) and place on a lined baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together honey, miso and soy sauce. Set aside for later.
  3. Drizzle your carrots in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and then toss. Spread the carrots out on the baking sheet and try not to let them touch too much. Giving them space will allow for more caramelization
  4. Place your baking sheet in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, rotating the baking sheet halfway through. When the carrots are almost tender when pierced with a fork, remove from the oven.
  5. Brush honey miso mixture over carrots. Flip carrots and brush on the other side. Place back in the oven and cook for 5 more minutes. 
  6. Remove from the oven. Garnish with thyme if desired, and serve warm.

    In the roasted carrot recipe, does the miso go in as a Tbsp of paste, or a diluted liquid as one would make for soup? I’m assuming it’s paste, but cannot imagine so much salt, with the addition of soy sauce.

      It’ll be a tablespoon of the paste! You can use the reduced salt Enjuku Koji Miso to make the sodium levels lower!
