Eleuthero is a root that’s superb for supporting energy levels and immunity. It has a mild but distinctive taste that tends to pair well with root vegetables, such as sweet potatoes and carrots.


• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch sections
• 2 tablespoons maple syrup
• 1/2 teaspoon eleuthero powder
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
• Salt, to taste


1. Lightly grease a baking pan with olive oil and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Slice carrots in half down the middle and then again lengthwise into quarters.

4. Spread carrots on the baking pan and roast in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. 

5. In a small bowl, blend together maple syrup, eleuthero powder, and ginger.

6. Place the roasted carrots into a bowl and drizzle with the herb mixture. Fold the carrots gently to help coat them evenly with the powdered herbs.

7. Add salt to taste, and serve warm.
