Roasted Honey Glazed Carrots (Paleo)

Honey Roasted Carrots

Honey brings such a pleasant sweetness to these carrots in this easy to make recipe. These roasted honey glazed carrots are the perfect side dish to an everyday meal.

I made this recipe last week as a side dish to our dinner. I usually saute, cook or eat the carrots raw. I hadn’t tried to roast them before. I decided to try something new this time. Even though I used basic ingredients, the carrots had such a wonderful flavor. Roasting them caramelizes the natural sugars and the honey just throws them over the top.

This recipe is not only easy and quick to put together but it is also packed with vitamins and minerals. Carrots are a super food! They are rich in vitamin A, C, K, B8, pantothenic acid, folate, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese. They are immune boosters and good for your digestion. So next time you are wondering what healthy side dish to cook, these delicious carrots are your answer. Even the pickiest of eaters will gobble these up.

MY LATEST RECIPES

There are so many ways to eat carrots – cooked, sauteed, grilled, roasted, juiced, in smoothies, raw. I don’t remember ever seeing fried carrots though. The people here in the South are known for frying everything, so who knows. So, what is your favorite way to eat carrots?

How To Make Roasted Honey Glazed Carrots
