Buttery Brown Sugar Roasted Carrots
Brown Sugar Roasted Carrots - the sweetest, most tender and buttery roasted carrots recipe ever! Five ingredients and 10 mins active time.
- 1 lb. baby carrots cleaned and rinsed
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Chopped parsley for garnishing
- Lemon wedges
1Preheat oven to 400°F (207°C).
2In a big mixing bowl, add the carrots, melted butter, garlic, brown sugar and salt together. Stir to mix well. Transfer the carrots into an oven-safe skillet (cast-iron preferred) and roast for 30 - 40 minutes, or until they become tender.
3Remove from the oven and garnish with the parsley and lemon wedges. Squeeze some lemon juice on top of the carrots before serving.
If you don't have an oven-safe skillet, you may use a glass bakeware, or lay out the carrots on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Substituted olive oil for the butter. Was quite good

Hi there! I’m using your recipe for thanksgiving. The ingredients list does not list the butter. How much butter? Thanks!
Hi Andrey, it should be 3 tablespoons melted butter. Sorry, I updated the recipe.
We have some cauliflower to use up tonight and wanted to do something different. This is a great idea and uses up what we have on hand. Thanks for the inspiration!

Totally this brown sugar roasted carrots are so good!
Would like to add cooked chicken breast with these colorful carrots and I would love this dish with plain white rice .
I think my oven runs a bit hot but I loved the browned crispy bits at the bottom of the pan. The carrots were delish. Definitely adding to my routine cooking. Thank you!
Thanks yes the brown bits are the best.
