A great way to cook carrots and almost any of your favorite root vegetables, from parsnips to turnips. To mix it up, try a combo! Delicious hot or room temperature.

To make the sauce: Soak cashews in warm water for 20-30 minutes, then drain and transfer to a Vitamix or blender. Add lemon juice, salt, and about a tablespoon of water (if necessary). Blend and blitz until you have a smooth paste. Add the yogurt and blend until combined, then season to taste with additional salt and olive oil.
To make the carrots: Heat oven to 425ºF. In a large bowl, mix the honey, oil, coriander, and cumin with 1 tsp. of salt and a good grind of black pepper. Add the carrots and mix well until coated. Spread on a large baking sheet and roast in the oven 30-40 minutes, stirring once or twice, until cooked through and glazed. Transfer the carrots to a large serving platter.
Serve warm or room temperature, with the sauce spooned on top.
