Roasted carrots with butter, honey, and balsamic vinegar are one of the best side dishes out there. They don’t require a ton of work for a weeknight meal and they taste amazing.




  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Cut carrots into sticks approximately 2-3 inches long and no thicker than 1/4 inch.
  3. Melt butter. Stir in honey, balsamic, and pepper. Taste and add a bit of salt if you like it a little saltier.
  4. Pour the butter mixture over the carrot sticks and stir or shake to combine.
  5. Arrange on a baking sheet with plenty of space so they aren’t all piled together.
  6. Bake 10 minutes. Stir and put back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
  7. Check that they are done to your preferred done-ness. If you’d like to roast them a bit longer, stir them and bake an additional 5-10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes.


*Can sub in your favorite oil.
**You can also skip the salt if you use salted butter or cut it back a bit.
