Grilled carrots make for the perfect easy side dish! These are perfectly charred and flavored with cumin and a spritz of fresh lime juice.


  • 1 1/2 pound large carrots cut in quarters lengthwise, or small thin carrots
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • Fresh ground black pepper


  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees).
  2. Peel the carrots and cut them into quarters if large or half if medium to small (the thinner the better!). 
  3. Place the carrots in a bowl and mix with olive oil and kosher salt.
  4. Place the carrots directly onto the grill grates and grill for 6-10 minutes, turning once.
  5. Roughly chop the cilantro.
  6. When the carrots are done, place them in a bowl and toss them with juice from 1/2 lime, cumin, cilantro, a few pinches kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.
