Preheat oven to 425°F.

Trim carrots, reserving 1 cup of carrot tops. Slice carrots in half lengthwise and place in large a bowl.  Add olive oil, cumin, salt, and pepper and toss to combine. Spread carrots evenly on a large baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender.

While the carrots are roasting, place carrot tops, garlic, cilantro, pepitas, and extra virgin olive oil in a blender and blend to combine. Add 1/4-1/3 cup water to thin sauce to desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix siggi’s yogurt with adobo sauce.

To serve, place the roasted carrots on a platter and drizzle with carrot top sauce and chipotle yogurt. Garnish with lime, toasted pepitas, and cilantro leaves.
