Grilled Carrots with Smoky Ketchup
Preheat grill to medium-high.Advertisement
Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the garlic starts to brown and the onion softens, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a mini food processor. Add bell pepper, honey, vinegar, paprika and a pinch of salt; process until smooth. Set aside.
Place carrots on a rimmed baking sheet and brush with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
Grill the carrots, perpendicular to the grates so they don't fall through, turning often, until tender-crisp and lightly charred, about 15 minutes total. Serve with the reserved ketchup.
To make ahead: Prepare ketchup (Step 2) and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
