All of them make a delicious and healthy side dish that can be served at regular weeknight meals or even dinner parties. They are crispy but tender and slightly caramelized. They are also bite-sized and obviously kids love that! Serve them with baked or grilled chicken or pork chops or even pasta.

  3. Bake and mix in fresh parsley and you are done.

How do you make best honey roasted carrots?

Also known as glazed carrots. Mix in 2 tbsp of brown sugar, honey or maple syrup with all the other ingredients and then bake. Be sure to toss everything a couple of times to prevent burning.

How long does it take to roast carrots at 425 degrees? 450 degrees?

I prefer baking at 450 degrees. The high temperature evaporates moisture quicker in less than 30 minutes and makes them nice and crispy. 425 degrees requires baking for an additional 5-8 minutes.

Tips and variations

  • Line the baking tray with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  • Spread out the carrots so they are not overlapping because this allows even baking.
  • Do not cover the pan with foil because that steams instead of roasting and makes the carrots mushy instead of crisp.
  • Rainbow carrots or even whole carrots can be used, although I prefer baby carrots.
  • For a deeper flavor, use a combination of unsalted butter and olive oil.
  • I used salt, pepper, parsley and garlic powder but you can mix in Italian seasoning and other fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, cilantro e.t.c.
  • Fresh garlic can be used instead of garlic powder.
  • If you like cheese, mix in about 2-3 tbsp of finely shredded parmesan cheese, as soon as you take the tray out of the oven. My son loves this!
  • For a spicy kick, add 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
