Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Make honey mixture: In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, honey, garlic powder salt and pepper.
  • Prepare carrots: Arrange the carrots in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle the honey mixture over the carrots and toss them around to make sure the carrots are thoroughly coated.
  • Roast the carrots: Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes or until the carrots are tender and start to brown.
  • Garnish and serve: Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.

Notes

  1. The baking time can vary based on how thick your carrots are. You want to cook them until they're fork tender.
  2. Play around with spices for different flavor profiles. Try adding a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the honey mixture. 
  3. You can also use baby carrots if you prefer.
  4. For a change, use equal amounts of maple syrup, agave syrup or even brown sugar.
  5. Any protein such as chicken, turkey, pork or beef goes very well with these carrots.
  6. Try using this honey mixture on different veggies, such as brussels sprouts, asparagus or butternut squash.
  7. Place cooled honey roasted carrots in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
