So what are you waiting for?! 😉
I don’t know about you, but here at SMTY, we are in full holiday mode.
Which is amazing, because the holiday season is my all time favorite time of year. Bring oooooon the cozy casseroles, the holiday movies, the warm blankets, the egg nog, and more.
I’m giddy just thinking about it. 🙂
While the holiday season is my all time favorite time of year, it’s also the busiest.
Holiday parties. So much recipe testing. Family gatherings. Food. Food. Food. . .
You get the idea.
That’s why today, I wanted to bring you guys a ridiculously easy recipe that’s also pretty darn healthy.
Have no fear, there are plenty of the classic, indulgent (because calories don’t count during the November/December months) that I’ve listed here –> all my favorite Thanksgiving recipes, but today, something a little lighter, yes?
And don’t forget, also crazy easy.
- Whisk together honey, spices: dried thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, pepper, and salt, and a touch of melted butter.
- Toss with a bag of baby carrots.
- Roast in oven.
- Garnish with crumbled goat cheese and cilantro <– both optional, but both highly recommended.
You guys. That was only 10 ingredients – INCLUDING the optional garnishes, 4 steps, and like 30 minutes of total time spent making/baking this dish.
These Honey Roasted Carrots are insanely quick and easy and are actually super tasty. Slow roasting the carrots with a touch of honey really brings out the sweetness and once they’re paired with all those spices, tangy goat cheese, and fresh cilantro?
I mean. Come OOOOOON.
I’m tellin’ you.
Carrots have never tasted soooooo delicious.
