HEALTHY HONEY ROASTED CARROTS
Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables!!! I really like the taste of these since it’s not too sugary. Even steamed carrots are a favorite of mine! However, I prefer a lot of vegetables that are simply steamed or even boiled. Growing up with a Dutch father may have had something to do with it – the Dutch tend to like boiling their veggies.
I have to say, as much as I like basic tastes, these honey-glazed carrots are a standout in my opinion. The butter and honey covering are extremely delicate and lovely to look at! Furthermore, it significantly enhances the sweetness of the carrots.
Carrots are naturally sweet, and this simple 20-minute dish uses a delectable glaze made of butter and honey to bring out their natural sweetness. For every pound of carrots, just around a spoonful of honey is required. But trust me!! it really makes a huge difference!!!
