Honey Roasted Carrots

Our family's favorite side, honey roasted carrots.

Other than salad, mashed potatoes, or sweet potatoes I never know what in the heck to do for Thanksgiving side dishes. Those three all have great recipes and variations out there, but don’t you ever want something else for a veggie? My mom used to make creamed carrots for Sunday dinners and while I’m totally wondering why I haven’t posted that recipe yet I do have one for honey roasted carrots today.

The biggest reasons I love this recipe is, A. it’s crazy easy, and B. you can actually prep everything including partially roasting the carrots in the morning and then finish them off before everyone arrives. Just make sure you don’t overcook them because no one wants bitter carrots.

We actually eat these all year round as they are Cade’s favorite recipe for carrots. In fact, this post is all him, he had the idea and did the photos. Did you know he does a lot of our recipes? Kind of awesome right?

Will Carrots Go Bad in the Frig.?

If carrots are not stored properly, they will go bad, even in the refrigerator.

Carrots should be stored in the crisper or vegetable drawer of the refrigerator.

Carrots can also be placed in water and stored in the refrigerator to help keep them fresh and crisp.

Do Carrots Contain Fiber?

Carrots are a high fiber food.

They also contain beta-carotene, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants.

They are a weight loss friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.
