Cooking with Carrots – Honey Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots

Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

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.
  • Melt butter over medium-heat; add garlic and cook, stirring very frequentlyDO NOT burn the garlic. 
  • Remove from heat and stir in the honey.
  • Toss the carrots with the prepared sauce, season, and bake in a 425F oven for 22 to 25 minutes, or until tender.
  • 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.

ENJOY!
