These honey roasted carrots are a healthy and easy-to-make side dish that is perfect for any night of the week.

Even as a kid, one of my favorite vegetables has always been carrots. They’ve been a favorite to snack on raw, with dressing or nut butters. And who could resist a good carrot cake?

But not only are carrots tasty, they are very good for you. Their color is a good indicator of that.

Carrots are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They are also a good source of antioxidants. And why are the carrots orange? Because of the high levels of the antioxidant, Beta-carotene.

Everyone could use a few more carrots in their life. Wouldn’t you agree?

How to Make Honey Roasted Carrots:

The first thing you will do is preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Peel and trim the ends from your carrots.

Cut your carrots into slices – I like to cut them diagonally. This give them a better presentation, but also gives them a larger surface to caramelize in the oven.

The carrots are tossed with some oil and a little salt. I find it easiest to do this in a mixing bowl.

Spread the carrots out onto a baking sheet and roast to perfection. Once they are tender, you’ll toss them into a serving bowl and drizzle in the glaze. That is it!

Serve these carrots with your favorite main dish. I suggest my French Onion Roast Beef or Lemon and Garlic Herbed Roasted Chicken.
