Buttery Honey Roasted Carrots

Buttery Honey Roasted Carrots

Buttery Honey Roasted Carrots are a great side dish to your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. The great part is, you can make these all year around.

I love roasting veggies because it's a great way to bring out the flavors while getting your nutrients. My favorite roasted veggies are my loaded brussels sprouts, cauliflower and these honey roasted carrots.

Can I use any carrots?

Yes, you may but I would use the full, long carrots and not the baby ones. In my opinion, it gives it a more classy and elegant feel to the dinner.

Cooking Tips

Since I don't cut the carrots, I will flip them halfway through to ensure they cook thoroughly. After 20 minutes, you should start to see some caramelization.

Another cooking tip is to peel the carrots before hand to give it a smooth and clean texture.

Be sure to not overcrowd the cooking dish and make sure the carrots are spread out.

What should I pair the carrots with?

I think the perfect meal would be with some mashed potatoes or cauliflower mash and steak. If you didn't know, steak and cauliflower mash is seriously one of my favorite meals. I love to top it off with some blue cheese.
