Roasted Carrots with Thyme
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I used rainbow carrots for this recipe and chunked them instead of cutting lengthwise. Drizzled them with roasted garlic oil instead of plain. The carrots were sweet enough for us w/o the honey. Definitely a keeper recipe....
I loved this recipe, but my husband would prefer just plain cooked carrots! It was a little difficult to get the glaze to spread on, but it spread out just fine while they were roasting.
Love this recipe! Make for myself all the time. However, some people do not care for the sweet/savory combination. So for them, I swap out the honey with balsamic vinegar and good quality olive oil and fresh thyme or whatever fresh herb I have on hand. Sprinkle with fresh rough chopped parsley or cilantro for extra flavor and a pretty presentation for guests.
I cut the carrots lengthwise too. I used the dried thyme, honey with light olive oil. Delicious! Thank you, Deirdre, for sharing this recipe.
These are a nice change from a more traditional roasted carrot. I, personally, didn't care for the roasted taste of the honey. My husband, however, loved them.
I have made these carrots twice now. The first time around, I had to use dried thyme and they were good; however, the second time I used fresh thyme and it was WAY better! This is such an easy side dish to put together, which is important when the main dish takes more prep time or you work full-time, like I do. Wonderful flavor, enhanced by the roasting process. Well-received by spouse and son. A keeper in my TOH Recipe Box!
So simple, and absolutely delicious. I used the dried thyme, but can't wait to make them again with fresh.
Quick and easy, and the thyme and honey make them so tasty
This recipe is flavorful and soooo easy. It's a pretty dish you can prep ahead of time then simply toss in the oven when it's time to bake. The fresh thyme makes it special.
This is one of my mother's favorite new recipes. I made it for Easter and then she made it again later on her own, which is a huge deal for her as she doesn't normally do anything new.
