Ingredients

  • 2 pounds carrots peeled
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • parsley, thyme or other herbs for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425F/220C. Then, cut the carrots on a diagonal, about 1"-1.5" in length. If your carrots are large and thick, you can slice them in half as well.

  • In a mixing bowl, toss the sliced carrots with the honey, garlic, butter, oil, and spices.

  • Pour the carrots and glaze onto a sheet pan and spread them out.

  • Roast for 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through. You can also broil for 2-3 minutes, to get caramelization on the edges.
  • Transfer carrots to a serving dish and garnish with chopped herbs.

Notes

  • To Store: Place leftovers in an airtight container and store for up to 3 days in the fridge. 
  • To Freeze: Use a freezer-safe bag or container and store for up to 3 months.
  • For Reheating: Simply reheat in the microwave until the carrots are warmed through.
  • I always recommend a heavy duty sheet pan when roasting veggies in the oven, so that your pan doesn't warp and twist.
