Honey Garlic Carrots

Guess what? HONEY-GARLIC CARROTS are a thing, called it!

This awesome side dish will go perfectly with virtually any main. It’s especially perfect with our EASY ROAST CHICKEN, our SIRLOIN TIP ROAST, these delicious LAMB CHOPS and our BARBECUED SALMON. These HONEY-GARLIC CARROTS also taste fabulous served alongside our EASY FRIED RICE dish, which is how I enjoyed them most recently when we shot this story.

Much of what we do here at Weekend at the Cottage goes to us trying really hard to keep things simple and delicious. We know you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen and would much rather enjoy the company of your friends and family. This recipe will let you do just that. Good idea then to PIN it to a favourite side dish board and send THIS LINK to friends. You’ll want them making this for you too!

Here’s what makes our HONEY-GARLIC CARROTS so perfect:

Ingredients for Honey-Garlic Carrots

SIMPLICITY

Sorry, did someone say keep it simple? We thought so! Tell your taste buds to expect layers of salty and sweet because we’re calling for a favourite vegetable flavoured with a classic trio of flavour boosters and finished with fresh dill and crunchy sea salt. The one ingredient you’ll need to plan for is the fresh dill. Sorry, but dried dill just doesn’t cut it in this recipe, fresh dill is it.

CARROTS

If you have a bag of carrots kicking around, you can make this. When you track down organic carrots, expect to really taste the sweetness of the carrots with the honey. Fingers crossed – you can find organic heirloom carrots like the ones we used, well then, mission accomplished. 

Heirloom carrots get bonus marks for their rainbow of colours that make the finished dish both visually appealing and so darn delicious too. 

Butter, honey and garlic prepared for the recipe

FLAVOUR BOOST

Now that the recipe testing and development is done, we can honestly say, “Aw shucks, it was nothing.” True story. There’s no way the triple-flavour combination of butter, garlic and honey wouldn’t work. These three ingredients together create a satiating buttery sweet and savoury mix that’s second to none.

OVEN BAKE

The two-stage baking process we call for is a wonderful trick. The oven temperature is high enough to soften the skin of the carrots in stage one, then seal the deal when the carrots head back into the oven for round two. This trick works perfectly.

SERVE

The final step to serve these oven-baked carrots is again about keeping things nice and easy. Although the instructions call for transferring and arranging the carrots on a serving plate or platter before sprinkling with the dill and salt, feel free to serve as is. What? Honestly, just sprinkle the carrots while they’re still on the baking sheet and let your family or guests grab and go. The casual appeal of this perfect side dish should not be missed.
