You can tweak the flavor profile of this dish in a lot of ways. I really enjoy adding diced rosemary leaves to the bag. You can also use a teaspoon or two of red curry paste to spice it up.

Zest the lemon and save the zest.

Take the sous vide bag out of the water and pour the carrots and their juice into a pan and heat over medium-high heat. Drizzle with the honey and squeeze some lemon juice, about 1/4 of the lemon, over the top. Cook until the sauce has just thickened then remove from the heat. Plate the carrots and top with the lemon zest. Sprinkle with the sea salt then serve.
