Oven Roasted Carrots with honey are one of my favorite ways to cook carrots as an easy vegetable side dish. They're easy enough to make on a weeknight, but decadent enough to make for a holiday Sticky and sweet and made with just a few ingredients.


  • 2 pounds medium carrots, peeled and cut into thick 1/2-1 inch slices on an angle
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, adjust to spice preference
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for serving


  1. Preheat - Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix Glaze - In a medium-large bowl, whisk together the honey, garlic, oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
  3. Toss Carrots - Add the sliced carrots to the glaze, toss to combine, and spread out evenly on a baking sheet.
  4. Roast - Roast the carrots for 20-25 minutes until fork tender and caramelized. If needed, you can broil for just a minute at the end to get a little extra browning (but do so carefully!)
  5. Serve - Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and serve.
