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.

  • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.

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.

    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.

      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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

      1. Delicious? Theyre watery. Not flavored. Cooked for 25 min..followed recipe to a T..and they were bland. Glad some of you found success. Please feel free to post your secret

          Oh no. So sorry they didn’t turn out for you. 😕 These carrots are absolutely great, but it happens.. I hope you still had a great Thanksgiving Day!
          I don’t know what would’ve made the carrots watery – the honey should’ve caramelized them. If they are too bland for you, just add a bit more salt… some people like more salt than others.

        2. James…what went wrong is called “operator error”.All these awesome reviews and little ole James couldn’t follow directions.Sometimes you’ve got to look in the mirror and stop blaming others.I’ve made these twice and they’re awesome.

      You will need to roast them until they are tender. Just place a fork into the carrots to determine if they are cooked through.

    A wonderful vegetable recipe. The long
    Peeled carrots were perfect with the sauce for Passover dinner. I substituted
    Margarine due to no butter allowed. Still yummy!
