1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the carrots and simmer until just tender, but with the slightest resistance in the center. While the carrots are simmering, place the remaining ingredients into a blender and puree to a paste, reserve. Drain the cooked carrots and spread them onto a baking sheet into an even layer. Let the carrots cool slightly until cool enough to handle. Once cooled, coat the carrots in the spice paste, making sure to coat them all very well. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the carrots have taken on a roasted color and are crisped at the tips, let cool until warm.
