Roasted Carrots with Honey and Thyme

We attempted to grow our own carrots this year to mixed results – the tops made an incredible pesto but we only harvested enough carrots for one meal!

I decided to cook them up with some thyme from the garden and local honey and the result was incredible! The mix of savory and sweet was just perfect.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. carrots, cut into quarters length-wise
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme

Carrots store well – they can easily be bought a week or two ahead. If you’re looking for fresh veggies for the holidays but want to shop ahead, this is a great option!

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spread the carrots on a baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, and thyme. Pour over the carrots and toss to coat.
  • Roast for 20-30 minutes, until the carrots are lightly caramelized.

I prefer the hands-off effort of roasting these carrots, but if you’re short on oven space – which happens a lot during the holidays! – you can also coin-slice the carrots and make these in a frying pan.
