Honey Roasted Carrots Ingredients

How to Make Roasted Carrots

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a Baking Sheet with some Parchment Paper.
  • Wash and peel carrots
  • Toss Carrots with oil, honey and seasonings (you can use a bowl or mix together in a Ziploc bag).
  • Arrange the carrots in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • Serve Hot

This dish is both savory and sweet. The garden fresh carrots flavors are enhanced with the sweet honey and the sprinkle of salt. Trust me, it’s delicious!

I’m often asked is this recipe super sweet? And the answer is no, not really. I find it’s a hint of honey that really brings out the natural flavors of the carrots being roasted. It’s a welcome side dish in my home.

Can I use garden carrots?

Yes you can use larger carrots, however you’ll want to cut them down in size if needed. This will help to keep them more uniform in size so that they can bake evenly.

How to reheat Roasted Carrots

You can reheat roasted carrots by arranging them on a baking sheet. Cook for a few minutes (about 5-10) in the oven at 400 degrees F until heated through.

How to store Roasted Carrots

Store cooled carrots in an airtight container in the fridge. You can keep them in a hard plastic container (Tupperware style) or you can keep them in a Ziploc bag. Either option is great and helps to keep them fresh longer.

How long are Roasted Carrots good for?

If properly stored within your fridge, the carrots will last up to a week. For best tasting results, eat them sooner rather than later. Waiting too long will have the carrots dry out and not taste as good when reheated.

Of course this recipe for Honey Roasted Carrots can be served year round but we love making this dish for the holidays. Nothing better than a little sweet when we are indulging on so many good foods.
