I made these Honey Roasted Carrots for my husband and I the other day for an easy side with lunch. I’ve made Simple Maple Roasted Vegetables for dinner before but never just roasted carrots. I do love carrots, but really I usually eat them raw, or my Mom’s Candied Carrots at the holidays, or as a base to a soup. I’ve been missing out!!! They’re soooo good.
Honey Roasted Carrots are so easy to make also!!! So that pretty much makes them a new staple in my house. It tastes like you’re eating candy but it’s carrots! Roasting them caramelizes the natural sugars and the honey just throws them over the top. I like the combination of the salt and garlic with the sweetness of the honey. If you haven’t noticed that’s a favorite combination of mine. These carrots won a stamp of approval from my husband and I know that they’ll be a new favorite in your home too!
