For Christmas dinner this year I was asked to bring a veggie dish. I've always loved Carrots growing up so it was a no brainer for me to make this dish. So I decided to make these Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots.
These Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots have a delicious glaze on them and come out with just a little crunch in the middle. We all know how good carrots are for you so I won't go into the nutritional benefits of carrots in this post. But if you really want to know, check out the nutritional information below or check out this independent commentary on Wiki.
So bottom line, if you don't like mushy cooked carrots, try this superb recipe for some sweet and crunchy carrots! Don't care for Carrots? Then you should try my Slow Cooked Cream Corn or my Baked Asparagus with Parmesan or my Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe. Delish!

Made these honey roasted garlic carrots for company tonight. Everyone just loved them, and was asked for the recipe. They were very easy to make, as I made the sauce in advance then incorporated the carrots in when it was time to put them in the oven. Will definately make them again.
