I made this honey roasted carrots a couple of months ago and totally forgot about posting it. Going through my pictures the other day and realized that I have the pictures and recipe sitting in my folder.
They pair so well together and make pretty bland tasting vegetables very good and delicious, after roasting in the oven.
My 4-year old son is a big fan of carrot. He loves baby carrots in soups and in stews, and carrots are always the first thing he eats from his dinner plate.
He loves carrot so much that he said he wanted to dress up as a carrot for the next Halloween (tell me about it!!). So I made this honeybutter roasted carrots specifically for him.
Instead of regular carrots, I got young carrots with tops. But you can get regular carrots or baby carrots for the recipe.
The key to this recipe is to roast the carrots long enough so they become so tender, so much so that they taste more like sweet potatoes than regular carrots.
The honey, butter, and garlic really do magic to these carrots and my son gobbled up the carrots. No fuzz and dinner was a breeze when he got his favorite food.
Try this easy peasy honey roasted carrot recipe for the little picky eaters, but I bet you that even the grown ups will be very happy to eat them.

Honey Butter Roasted Carrots – the most delicious and tender roasted carrots, with honey, butter and garlic. So easy and takes 10 mins to prep.
- 1 lbs carrots, two bunches with tops, tops trimmed and skin peeled
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- salt to taste
- freshly cracked black pepper
- 2 teaspoons finely chopped parsley leaves
- 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup or to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Toss the carrots with the melted butter, garlic, a large pinch of salt, black pepper, parsley, and honey in a big bowl, then transfer them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Spread out in a single even layer, and roast for about 25 minutes, or until the carrot is fork-tender and lightly browned.
You can use olive oil instead of butter, if you like.
