Honey Balsamic Roasted Carrots

Honey Balsamic Roasted Carrots

We have been all about carrots lately. They are a great vegetable to have on hand since they last forever and you can prepare them in all kinds of ways. My mom has always hated cooked carrots and her grandma always told her “cooked carrots will kill you.” It’s been a running joke throughout our family forever so she always gives me a hard time when I tell her we are having cooked carrots with dinner.

I love the sweet and tangy taste that the sauce lends to the carrots. And they really couldn’t get much easier. Have you noticed a trend of ease with the recipes I share? I’m all about easy meals for weeknights as I’m sure many of you are too.

For hot, summer days I am considering placing all the ingredients in a foil packet and throwing them on the grill.

Honey Balsamic Roasted Carrots
recipe from So Wonderful So Marvelous

2 lbs. carrots {peeled, washed and cut into chunks}
4 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
Herbs and Seasonings {I used salt, pepper and thyme}
3 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss carrots with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and herbs/seasonings of your choice. Place in a 13 x9 and roast for 20-25 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, combine remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil, honey and balsamic vinegar. After the 20-25 minutes, remove carrots and evenly toss with the honey mixture. Return them to the oven for another 5 minutes.
