Honey-Chile Glaze for Roasted Root Vegetables

Honey-Chile Glaze for Roasted Root Vegetables
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 – 1/3  cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 clove garlic, grated
1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all in small bowl and whisk well, or put all ingredients in a small jar and shake like crazy.  The honey will combine better and easier if it’s warmed a bit, so I put the metal bowl (or jar) on top of the oven as the veggies are roasting.   When the veggies are about halfway done, I pour on some of the glaze (they shouldn’t be swimming in it, although it IS tasty enough for that!), toss around, then roast for another 20-30 minutes.
