Versatile, healthy, and always delicious, carrots are one strong ally of mine, especially on busy weeknights. A few additional items like garlic, butter, and honey help to break the crunchy orange veggie out of its role as a vessel for Ranch Dip. Which is the only role carrots play when in the hands of my kids…

HOW TO MAKE THIS ROASTED CARROTS RECIPE

CAN YOU COOK GLAZED CARROTS A DAY AHEAD?

  • Absolutely! Cooking carrots a day ahead is a time-saver and they are simple to reheat and serve.
  • While the microwave is OKAY to use for reheating, I suggest to pop them on the stove. Add just a bit of butter to the pan and reheat over medium-low heat until the carrots are heated through and just beginning to brown.

HOW TO STORE ROASTED CARROTS

  • Allow carrots to cool completely. Transfer the cooled carrots to an airtight container and cover with a lid.
  • The carrots will store well for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.

    These were so good!! I discovered too late the first time I made them that I was out of honey so I had to substitute brown sugar. It was so delicious that I consider it a happy accident and I’ve made them several times since that way. Thank you for the recipe. It’s definitely a keeper.

  2. Janet

    Unfortunately the garlic burns at this high heat. Better to either roast or saute the carrots separately from the garlic and then add the two together with the honey in the last minutes of cooking.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi!
      I honestly can’t say because I haven’t tested it. If you do try it, please let us know if it worked out.

  3. Colleen Gibson

    Very good! I stuck to the recipe but I did par cook the carrots in the microwave to ensure doneness. My husband loves them! He’s been eating them off of the cooking sheet. I took a picture but do not see where to add a photo.

  4. Ellen Greenlund

    The carrots were quite good, but as they roasted at high temperature the garlic became burned and the pan was a beast to clean. Next time I’ll line the pan and use garlic powder instead.

    1. Ellen

      Part of my problem was not greasing the pan, duh! I still wouldn’t use fresh garlic unless I sautéed it separately and added as the carrots came out of the oven.:-)

  5. Christi

    This is so good! The only change I made was to use my dutch oven, to save on dishes. So I used my dutch oven on the stovetop to melt the butter and cook the garlic, then I added everything else and put it in the oven with the lid on for 20 mins and 5 mins without the lid. Turned out great. Thank you so much!

  6. Molly

    These came out perfect and everyone loved them! Simple to make, just make sure your carrots are cut the same size so they will all be tender at the same time. Will definitely make again.

        1. Katerina Petrovska

          Hi!
          If you found it to be a bit bland, you might want to use more garlic next time, or just add a sprinkle of salt to the carrots. I personally find that adding a bit more salt and pepper always takes care of the end result.

  7. Elizabeth

    This didn’t turn out for me either. The recipe says a rimmed baking sheet, but all your photos are in a baking dish? I cooked at the correct temp/time, and the sauce was all burned on the pan and the carrots were barely tender. However I made the chicken with creamy spinach sauce and it was lovely.

  8. JP

    Made 1/2 recipe & the family LOVED it! I did it all on one pan using my cast iron skillet!
    Thanks for sharing.

    p.s.
    what donu think of using olive oil instead of butter?

  9. Laura

    This was GOOD. I’ve seen glazing carrots in butter or honey before but never added garlic before. Balanced out the sweet perfectly.

  10. TF

    This recipe was a huge hit for Thanksgiving and super simple to make. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. Thank you for giving me something to do with the extra carrots I have on hand.

  11. flygyumri

    Once you ve tasted these roasted carrots bathed in a honey-garlic butter sauce, you might proclaim (like both my husband and I did) that it s the only way you ll ever eat carrots again. The combination of nutty brown butter, fragrant garlic, and sweet honey is basically the dream team, so it s no wonder you ll feel this way.

  12. Wendy

    I was very disappointed with this recipe. I made it exactly as written, no adjustments at all. It needs more honey or sweetener to balance out the garlic flavor. The carrots were barely fork tender, leaving the texture of the carrots too firm. After baking there was a pool of butter left under the carrots. I wouldn’t remake this ever again.

  13. Robert M. Marullo

    I love Garlic Butter Roast Carrots. Just a quick question. The picture you posted of the Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots Recipe just before the recipe ingredients, shows them roasted succulent and very delicious.
    However, the picture shown later with the recipe completed, the carrots looked far too dried out. Is is because of the
    temperature was too hot or do you have to monitor the recipe very closely at the 22 minute mark. Hate dried out
    carrots.
    Thank you for your help and assistance.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi!
      I, too, hate dried out carrots. 😀 But, those that look dry on the pic are actually raw; I took that pic before I popped them in the oven.

  14. Chrissie Baker

    I LOVE how easy and delicious this is! Good idea! Looks very tasty! I am going to make this! This recipe really impresses! I really like! Thank you.
