Honey Roasted Carrots Recipe
These easy honey roasted carrots only have 3 ingredients, and the whole family will devour them! They're the perfect simple side dish.
- 2 pounds carrots peeled & cut into pieces
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Fresh parsley chopped, to taste (optional)
Preheat oven to 375F and move the rack to the middle position.
Prep carrots and add them to a baking dish. Toss with olive oil, honey, and salt & pepper.
Roast carrots until desired tenderness is reached, stirring them about halfway through. My carrots were medium-to-large size and I cut them into about 1/2" thick pieces and they took an hour to get nice and soft. I recommend stirring them after 25-30 minutes or so, and then gauging cooking time from there based on how done they are.
Once the carrots are done, give them a stir (there will be some "sauce" left). I sprinkled mine with parsley, but that is not necessary. Serve immediately.
- Cooking time will vary based on the size of the carrots. You can let them cook even longer if you want the honey to caramelize (the carrots will be very soft at that point).
