Honey Roasted Carrots
The natural sweetness of carrots paired with a sweet honey glaze makes these Honey Roasted Carrots irresistible to kids and adults alike.
Baking Tray (sheet)
- 1 kg (2lbs) Carrots
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1/2 tsp Garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp Ginger, minced
Pre-heat oven to 200c / 400f
Peel the carrots. If the carrots are thick, cut them in half lengthwise; if not, leave whole. Slice the carrots diagonally in 3-4 cm (1 1/2-inch) thick slices.
In a large mixing bowl add the olive oil, honey, ginger and garlic and mix until combined. Add the carrots and toss them in the honey/oil marinade.
Transfer the carrots to a baking tray (sheet pan) in 1 layer, drizzle with a little of the remaining marinade and roast in the oven for 20 minutes, until browned and tender.
Drizzle over the remaining marinade and toss with freshly topped parsley. Serve.
MAKE IT BABY FRIENDLY: Honey should not be served to under 1s. If making for a baby then miss the honey out. I do not recommend replacing with another sweetner as it is advised the under 2s should consume no added sugar. The carrots will be sweet enough.
MAKE IT VEGAN FRIENDLY: The honey can be replaced with maple syrup
