To make the prep even easier, I used baby carrots. Plus, everything tastes better when it’s mini right?

We had friends visiting this week and while I really enjoyed seeing them, I’m pretty tired so I’ll keep this post short and sweet– just like how these carrots are. If I make these for a brunch, I will have to double the recipe because I ate nearly this whole plate by myself.

Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots

Carrots are glazed with a honey garlic sauce and then roasted until tender. They are ready in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • 4 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce (if using regular sodium soy sauce, please use less)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp sriracha sauce
  • fresh thyme leaves (optional, for garnish)
   

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread carrots across the surface of the baking sheet, making sure none of them overlap. Brush carrots lightly with olive oil.
  3. In a small saucepan, add honey, garlic, soy sauce, onion powder and sriracha and bring to a simmer. Stir until mixed and cook until sauce thickens. Remove from heat. Brush carrots with sauce, leaving about half of the sauce for a second glaze later.
  4. Roast carrots in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until carrots are tender yet still crisp.
  5. Brush carrots with another layer of honey garlic sauce before serving. If your honey garlic sauce has cooled too much and becomes solidified, you can heat it up slightly before brushing carrots with glaze. Garnish with thyme leaves if desired. You can also add a few thyme sprigs for decoration.
