Irresistible Herb Carrots Directions
I love fresh thyme and was lucky to have some overwinter in my backyard making it easy to pop out there and add it to my recipes. It is easiest to wash the carrots and place them on parchment paper on the baking sheet. I then drizzled them with oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Roast carrots at 400 for 20- 30 minutes, depending on the size of your carrots. I made the whipped goat cheese while they were in the oven. Placing the goat cheese, chili onion crunch, and honey in the mixer. You might need to add 3-6 Tbsp water to get the cheese smooth and whipped.
Whipped Hot Honey Goat Cheese Directions
The goat cheese has red pepper, and honey, and is drizzled with olive oil and a little bit of thyme to finish. Place everything in a bowl, I used my kitchen aid & whip it together until thoroughly combined. You can add as much chili crunch sauce or as little as you like. I personally liked the heat it added to the creamy, sweet honey goat cheese. The combo of flavors in this whipped hot honey goat cheese is hard to beat!

It made for the perfect portions for each person, and not need to dip. There is no wrong way to serve this recipe up, just find what works best for you.
As I said this combo is unreal but you could switch things up. If you don’t love goat cheese swap it out for feta. If you don’t love carrots you could swap them for red potatoes or sweet potatoes would be good too! Lots of options!
