Little G loves carrots and I am always making carrots for him at home. However, as a picky eater, he only likes baby carrots. Come to think about it, everyone loves baby carrots.
Use Baby Carrots or Baby Cut Carrots
There is nothing not to love about mini-sized carrots. Baby carrots or baby cut carrots are just better, such as this amazing and absolutely addictive brown butter garlic honey roasted carrots.
If you use regular carrots, just cut them into smaller pieces or chunks.
Now, why brown butter? Well, brown butter is just better. Basically brown butter is butter cooked over over medium heat. As the butter melts, it will begin to foam and turn golden brown in color.
See the above picture of brown butter (image credit: Serious Eat). When the butter is browned, saute some garlic, add the carrots and honey to the skillet.
I finish the dish in the oven by roasting it for 20 minutes, and the end result is this tender, garlicky, buttery, and slightly sweet carrots.
This brown butter garlic honey roasted carrots is becoming my favorite roasted carrot recipes (click to check out the recipes). Serve it as a side dish to almost everything you make and I will assure you that everyone will love it, including the pickiest eaters.
