Thanksgiving Sides: Part 4
Thanksgiving Sides: Part 4 – Honey glazed carrots! These carrots are super easy to make, plus they add a bit of healthy veggies to the Thanksgiving table.
I used long and thin organic carrots, but you could just as easily use regular large carrots or baby carrots as well. If using large carrots, I recommend cutting them – lengthwise – into slightly thinner pieces, in order to help them cook a little faster. Baby carrots could be cut in half lengthwise.
Honey is one of my favorite ingredients, and it’s definitely my favorite sweetener. And for some reason, honey goes really well with carrots!
These carrots are a super yummy and healthy addition to any Thanksgiving (or everyday!) feast.
Honey Glazed Carrots – serves 6-8
25 Whole Carrots, halved lengthwise
3 tbsp Honey
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread carrots on a baking sheet. Drizzle with honey and olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Using tongs, toss carrots to coat well with honey, oil, and seasoning. Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until carrots are tender. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the carrots. For best results, rotate baking sheet half way through cooking time to bake more evenly.
