Honey Glazed Carrots

My blog does not reflect the fact that I have a massive sweet tooth, but believe me when I say I do. I love my fair share of savory foods, but I'm always looking forward to dessert. This makes honey glazed carrots a perfect halfway point for me. You are welcome to eat this tasty veggie dish alone, as a side with other vegetables, or with your choice of poultry.

What You Need

  • Olive Oil

  • Salt + Pepper to taste

  • 1/4 Tsp of Thyme

  • 2 Tbsp Honey - there are plenty types of honey. If your budget allows it go for Manuka, and if not, do what I do and reach for something local.

  • 2 Organic Carrots

Note: When I made this recipe, it was only for Nima and I, and we used it as a side. That is why we only used to carrots - one for each. Double the recipe as needed.

How To Make It

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F

  2. Wash and peel the carrots, then cut them in half length-wise

  3. Place carrots on a baking sheet and drizzle the desired amount of olive oil on them

  4. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, and thyme over the carrots

  5. Then drizzle them with the honey - try and distribute it as evenly as possible

  6. Place the baking sheet in the oven until carrots are soft - approximately 30 minutes

  7. At this point, stop baking the carrots and broil them on high

  8. Keep a close eye on the carrots and remove them from the oven once they begin to just barely blacken

Happy Cooking!
