Gluten-free, suitable for strict vegetarians and made with our one of a kind TranzAlpine Honey Organic Honey Fusion with Tumeric

Turmeric is a well known, proclaimed superfood. Familiar in home kitchens as an orange-yellow powder or whole root – similar to its cousin, whole ginger, except for its bright orange colour under the skin – has been used as a staple in Asian cooking for thousands of years.


  • 250g Baby carrots, washed, pat dried with a paper towel, cut lengthwise
  • 1 Tbs TranzAlpine Organic Turmeric Honey Fusion
  • 1 Garlic clove, grated
  • 1 Tbs butter or plant-based butter alternative, melted
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Toasted sesame seeds to serve


  1. Toasting sesame seeds enhances their nutty flavour and crunchy texture. For toasted sesame seeds you will need a wide frying pan and stovetop. Heat the sesame seeds on low heat, shaking the pan occasionally. Remove the seeds when they slightly darken and become fragrant. They should be toasted and ready between 3 and 5 minutes. Keep in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to three months.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  3. In a small bowl make the aromatic butter or a plant-based alternative - mix the turmeric honey, grated garlic, and melted butter using a small whisk.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Toss the baby carrots with the aromatic garlic butter and honey mix.
  6. Transfer the carrots to the baking sheet. Arrange them in a single layer.
  7. Roast for about 30 minutes or until soft and tender, flipping every 10 minutes.
  8. Transfer to a plater, drizzle with the remaining aromatic butter, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
