Honey Roasted Carrots

I always have the best of intentions to eat healthier, but my success is limited, especially with all the delicious restaurants and foods out there that need to be sampled. Last week I made a simple roasted cod (EVOO, salt, pepper, and lemon zest, in a 450 degree oven till medium) with honey roasted carrots. I really liked the carrots. They were tender and sweet, and I added a squeeze of lemon juice at the end for brightness.

I’ll post the recipe I based it on, as well as my own, as what I did was different since my oven was already occupied.

1 lb bag of baby carrots
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
Juice from ½ lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Bring salted water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Let carrots steam until just tender, about 5-7 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl. Toss with the oil, honey, salt and pepper.

  2. Using a nonstick pan, cook carrots till they get a little color. Squeeze lemon juice on it before serving.

Steaming the carrots tenderizes them before baking. The honey really heats up; during baking, check once or twice so it doesn't burn the carrots.
ingredients
3 to 4 bunches (depending on size) fresh carrots, peeled
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
preparation
1. Preheat the oven to 450°:F.
2. Cut the carrots into thirds, crosswise on a sharp diagonal.
3. Bring salted water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Let carrots steam until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl. Toss with the oil, honey, salt and pepper.
4. Place the carrots on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 25 minutes. Loosen them from the baking sheet with a spatula. Adjust the seasonings and remove to a serving bowl.
