Honey Maple Roasted Carrots

An easy simple side dish to accompany any meal, tossed in olive oil, maple syrup, honey and herbs. Just 5 min prep. That’s it!

I don’t really shop much in the frozen aisle as I try to use fresh produce whenever possible. But sometimes, you just don’t have the time to peel, cut and slice your veggies so you just skip your sides altogether. And your serving of veggies.

That is, until I discovered crinkle cut carrots. Mind-blowing, I know. Plus, crinkles add such rusticness to a dish.

And with these crinkle carrots, you don’t have to slice anything. You don’t even have to take out your knife, unless you need that parsley garnish.

All you need is olive oil, honey, maple syrup and some pantry herbs. That’s it. From there, you can let these babies roast until they reach that crisp-tender goodness.

It’s quick, simple, and sure to be a hit with your picky eaters who have sworn off all veggies!

Those carrots look delicious! I love the combination of the savory sweet, spicy, savory. Yum!! Thank you for sharing.

I’ve had honey glazed carrots before, but never with maple syrup – these look great! And yes, I’ve definitely been known to skip veggie sides from time to time, so this will be a useful recipe to have on hand.

This is an absolutely wonderful recipe for what is normally a rather mundane frozen vegetable. I’d invite that if you have a little extra time in the morning, whip this recipe up and let the carrots marinate in the mixture in the fridge until you’re ready to do the roasting at dinnertime. I’ve had amazing results with other veggies using any number of seasoned marinades, and the results are always spectacular. And if you have the barbecue going as part of dinner prep…then throw these delicious crinkly babies on the grill as well, in a ironstone skillet or griddle. Scrumptalicious ! ! ! !

I tend to shop for fresh products as much as possible
but I love deep frozen peas 😛
Thanks for this lovely colorful recipe!

Would you suggest par-boiling, prior to baking, if using fresh carrots? I actually have a crinkle cutter, a perfect opportunity to resurrect it.

You may just have to adjust cooking time as needed. And I am so jealous of your crinkle cutter. I need one, stat.

Did some homework, crinkle cutters are available at Amazon (several options) and also at Target; all choices were under $20.00. Good luck and happy chopping.

The hubs is going to kill me. I am using the last of our printer ink to print this recipe. It looks amazing. How can he blame me?! His belly will love me, though… I hope. Better not click on anything else. Pulling away from the computer now! #FoodieProblems

Do you defrost the carrots first before putting them in the oven? Sounds like a great & simple recipe – my favorite kind.

Nope – no defrosting needed here 🙂

How many carrots should you prep if using fresh?
