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

  • Cut up the carrots and set aside.

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.

  1. 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.
