Vegetable side dishes can be hard to find sometimes but don’t just open up a can of veggies, you should try out Green Beans Almondine, Roasted Spring Vegetables, or Maple Pecan Brussels Sprouts instead!

Glazed Carrots Honey

A Sweet Twist on a Vegetable Favorite

I feel like carrots sometimes get a bad reputation because they are a more starchy vegetable. However, what most people don’t know is that carrots are filled with great vitamins, minerals and even fiber, plus they are a great source of antioxidants. Well these honey glazed carrots combine all the goodness that carrots have to offer along with sweetness from fresh honey and spices to make the perfect side dish! It would be a show stopper at any pot luck or even a great side to use on Thanksgiving or Christmas!

One thing I LOVE about this recipe outside of the fact that these honey glazed carrots melt in your mouth is that it only takes 10 minutes of prep and then the oven does the rest of the work! Now that is my kind of recipe, especially on busy days.

How to Make Honey Glazed Carrots

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Peel carrots and cut into desired length, thickness.

Place the carrots in a baking dish.
