Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20-30 minutes until the carrots are fork tender and caramelized. Remove from oven and set aside.

We recommend unsweetened canned Native Forest coconut milk for this recipe. The bone broth should be homemade and/or free of high FODMAP ingredients including garlic, onion, and leeks. Feel free to replace bone broth with equal amounts of water or low FODMAP broth. Honey contains fructose. Northern latitude honey (clover, raspberry, alfalfa) contain a closer ratio of fructose to glucose than tropical honey (like the honey that Monash University tested and noted as a high fodmap food). Since northern latitude honey contains a closer ratio of fructose to glucose, this improves fructose absorption and we find that many people with fructose intolerance can enjoy a small amount of northern latitude honey. Please try this and see how you do (easy enough to test out in tea, like Rooibos tea). Guest Guru Patsy Catsos recommends to her patients and readers, to not include honey. If you were referred to GutRxGurus by Patsy, please omit honey from this recipe. We're happy to make a suitable substitution suggestion. Feel free to post a question in the forum!
