Course: Side Dish

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds (907g) whole carrots, peeled and washed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2- 2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder (or 4-5 cloves garlic, minced)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped parsley fro garnish, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C).

  2. Cut carrots lengthwise in half or fourths so they are around the same thickness.  Place on a large baking sheet.  Drizzle with melted butter, honey, vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Toss to coat.  Bake for 15-25 minutes or until desired doneness.  I like mine tender crisp so I cook for 15-20 minutes.  Sprinkle with chopped parsley if desired.  

Recipe Notes
  1. You can use baby carrots in place of the whole carrots.
  2. Make sure to cut the carrots so they are around the same thickness, that way they cook evenly.  
  3. You can also cut whole carrots into 2-3 inch chunks instead of lengthwise.  Again make sure they are around the same thickness. 
  4. I don't recommend cooking more than 2 pounds of whole carrots on a sheet pan.
  5. Make ahead: have your carrots prepped (washed, peeled, cut) and have the glaze mixed up ready to go.  Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
