Chef John's Five-Spice Carrots

INGREDIENTS


PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Cut halved carrots in half again crosswise on the diagonal. Place carrots into a 2-quart baking dish and drizzle with vegetable oil; sprinkle with 5-spice powder and salt to taste. Toss lightly to coat carrots with oil and seasoning. Arrange carrots into an even layer.

  3. Roast carrots in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; check for tenderness and stir if desired. Continue roasting until tender, 15 to 20 more minutes.
