Easy Honey Roasted Carrots are such a flavorful and simple side dish for weeknight meal or the holidays! Carrots are roasted to tender perfection with honey, garlic, and a simple blend of seasonings.
Roasted carrots are one of my favorite side dishes to serve my family! They go great with these Crispy Baked Chicken Thighs. Everyone loves them as a simple holiday side dish as well and with Thanksgiving, right around the corner, these are on my menu right along with my Mashed Potatoes!
Call me crazy, but, I would gladly eat a big bowl of these cooked carrots for lunch! Something about roasting carrots really brings out that sweet flavor. These get a bit of a savory kick from garlic, butter, Italian seasoning, as well as salt and pepper. Then, we use honey to bring out that natural carrot sweetness and these are simply amazing!
