Glazed Oven Roasted Carrots

I am not a big fan of cooked carrots. Even as a child I did not like cooked carrots. I love the taste of carrots, but cooked carrots have a mushy odd texture that I have never been a fan of. That is until I tried oven roasted carrots.

Roasting vegetables at a high oven temperature helps give them really good flavor and a nicer texture than just cooking or steaming them. My favorite way to cook asparagus is to roast it. In fact I prefer most of my vegetables roasted.

There are a lot of ways to roast vegetables and especially carrots. You can use butter or oil and a little salt and pepper. You can also give them an Asian flavor or even an herb flavor.

One of my favorites ways to roast carrots though is this recipe. It is simple and really good. This would be a great side dish for a holiday meal, but it is also perfect for any meal. We eat these anytime and my kids love them.

    Thanks for this simple recipe. I do love the taste of cooked vs raw carrots so this is probably right up my alley. I am awaiting our new to us oven that should be here before the end of the month so I will for sure be trying these…..Julie

  4. I’ve been looking for a good cooked carrot recipes. Thanks! I can’t wait to try these.

  5. I love carrots and this recipe sound GREAT!!!

  6. Yum. Have you ever thought about roasting parsnips? They are just a little sweeter than carrots naturally.. but roasting helps to caramelize the sugars and they taste soooooooo good. A big tradition in this household every Holiday. You can also steam and mash them too if you have wee ones in the house.

  7. yum! i love roasted carrots as well and definately prefer them that way over steamed. i did rainbow carrots this summer and i ate them all! i accidentally overcooked them and they were still delish!~

  8. I abhor the texture of cooked carrots, but I love them raw and roasted! Glad I’m not the only one. 🙂

    Great simple dish. Will make again!

  10. Absolutely LOVED these. All I did was add to the recipe some “garlic and wine” seasoning about 1/2 tsp. They reheated well the next day too, this will become a regular dish in our house
