    Honey Herb Roasted Carrots Recipe

    Gobs of brown sugar and melted butter often marry together to make glazed carrots.

    But we created one mouthwatering recipe without these ingredients heavy in saturated fat and unwanted, refined sugar. Instead, our recipe includes heart-healthy olive oil and seasonings.

    • Maintain good vision
    • Prevent certain diseases, including heart disease
    • Support digestive health
    • Control blood sugars
    • Assist in cell growth
    • Help build strong bones

    What to Pair with Honey Roasted Carrots

    These honey roasted carrots are divine enough to be enjoyed straight from the pan!

    But why limit their potential? You do not want to miss out on these 8 delicious dish pairings!

    1. Tuna Noodle Casserole

    Deep dive into the taste of the sea with tuna noodle casserole. A comfort classic is lightened up with fresh ingredients and pairs perfectly with the roasted carrots.

    2. Garlic Shrimp Scampi

    A touch of garlic, red pepper flakes, and white wine give shrimp scampi flavor deep as the sea! Round out the dish with the roasted carrots.

    3. Eggplant Parmesan

    Lightly breaded and baked eggplant is layered with gooey melted cheese and topped with tomato sauce and fresh basil. The carrots are an ideal balance to this healthy, yet rich dish!

    4. Vegan Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce

    A vegan-friendly, rich bowl of tender gnocchi is topped with a luscious mushroom sauce. But to make the meal truly vegan, sub out the honey for agave, maple syrup, or another sweetener of choice.

    5. Pork Tenderloin with Olive Tapenade

    Delicate, yet juicy pork tenderloin couple perfectly with the sweetness of the roasted carrots. Feel free to skip out on the olive tapenade as desired. (A grainy mustard would also contrast the flavor perfectly!)

    The tender lean beef is cooked to perfection and the emerald green broccoli is soft and savory. Add a layer of flavor and nutrients by coupling with the carrots. Garnish with sesame seeds for the ultimate dish!

    7. Chicken Stuffed with Wild Rice

    Bite into a juicy, tender chicken breast and get a mouthful of wild rice loaded with fresh flavors. Recommended serving with favorite vegetables, including honey roasted carrots!

    8. More Veggies

    Looking for more veggies to go with your veggies? Many varieties complement carrots and likewise roast to perfection. Add other veggies to the sheet pan alongside carrots, including sweet potatoes and squash.
