I came home from the grocery store yesterday with almost 10 different kinds of root vegetables…I think I might have a problem. I just couldn’t walk past the butternut squash, the carrots, the sweet potatoes or the beets without loading up my cart!

Balsamic Honey Glazed Carrots
- 14 large carrots with their tops
- 2 tbsp honey or other vegan honey substitute
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 pinch sea salt more or less, to taste
- Set your oven to preheat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with a sheet of parchment paper. Don't skip this step! The glaze will caramelize in the oven and if you don't line your baking sheet you're going to have a heck of a time getting it clean! Parchment paper also prevents sticking so you don't have to add any oil or fat to the recipe which keeps it nice and light!
- Wash your carrots very well, making sure to scrub off any lingering mud.
- Snip the tops off leaving about 1 inch of green attached.
- Dry the carrots and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
- Whisk together the honey and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl and brush it on to the carrots. Drizzle any remaining honey mixture over the carrots and roll them around a bit to make sure they're all well coated. Sprinkle a pinch or two of sea salt over the carrots.
- Once the oven has preheated, roast the carrots for 18-22 minutes or until they're roasted to the texture you prefer.
- When you pull them out of the oven they'll be tender and coated with the sticky honey balsamic glaze.
- Transfer carrots to a platter and serve while still immediately.
