  • 1/2 cup (120 milliliters) olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons (45 milliliters) honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon (7.5 milliliters) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 milliliters) pepper
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) shelled pistachios, finely chopped
  • Chopped parsley, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C).
  2. Trim and slice the carrots in half lengthwise, arrange on a lined baking sheet.  Slice the shallots in half lengthwise and add to the pan.
