Ingredients

  • 14 large carrots with their tops
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch sea salt more or less, to taste

Instructions

  1. Set your oven to preheat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. 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!
  3. Wash your carrots very well, making sure to scrub off any lingering mud.
  4. Snip the tops off leaving about 1 inch of green attached.
  5. Dry the carrots and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. 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.
  7. Once the oven has preheated, roast the carrots for 18-22 minutes or until they're roasted to the texture you prefer.
  8. When you pull them out of the oven they'll be tender and coated with the sticky honey balsamic glaze.
  9. Transfer carrots to a platter and serve while still immediately.

Recipe Notes

To make additional sauce, if desired, simply heat an additional 4 tablespoons of honey and 4 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar over low heat, whisking until combined and smooth. Serve with additional sauce, if desired.
