Honey and Za'atar Glazed Carrots

Zaatar, a Middle Eastern spice blend, works well here with the sweetness of carrots, honey, and the citrus notes of the lemon zest.

Look for colourful heirloom carrots when available!

If the carrots are fresh and tender they don’t need to be peeled; just clean well with a vegetable brush.
