  1. Heat oven to 400F (204C) degrees. Toss carrots with olive oil and spread out onto a sheet pan. Roast in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, giving a shake midway through. Season with salt and pepper fresh out of the oven. Buns can be toasted in the oven at the same time - they'll just need ~5 minutes.
  2. Brush patties with cooking oil and salt and pepper. Heat up grill pan or skillet over high heat. Grill burgers for about 4 minutes on each side. If burgers haven't reached 165F (74C) degrees, cover with foil, lower heat, and cook until they reach a safe temperature.
  3. Assemble burgers. Top patties with tomatoes and adobo honey sauce and enjoy with carrot fries. If there's extra adobo honey sauce, use it as a dip for the carrot fries too!
