Roasted Carrots with Honey

These roasted carrots have the perfect naturally sweetened flavor and the roasting just brings a delicious depth to them.

To make them all you need to do is dice into pieces, drizzle with oil and roast, 30 – 40 minutes while tossing with a honey and vinegar mixture halfway through.

Then finish off with fresh herbs for one ore layer of flavor.

How Long do You Bake Carrots?

Normally I’d roast them just a bit longer than I did here but I was running out of daylight for pictures, but just do it according to your own personal preference, about 30 – 40 minutes.

Just keep in mind that thinner carrots will cook faster than the thicker ones so if you got a bag of the long thin carrots cut back the time as needed.

It may be tempting to leave of the fresh herbs but I do recommend trying it with them. They add the perfect amount of flavor while adding just the right amount of savory contrast to the sweetness..
