Simply Perfect Roasted Carrots

When you have beautiful freshly pulled carrots, you celebrate them with simplicity. This is probably the most basic recipe I will ever share and one of the most delicious. Perfectly roasted carrots are elegant, sweet, and rich. When accented with thyme butter and a touch of honey, they shine.


  • 10-12 carrots, fresh from the garden
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pinch flake salt


  • Preheat oven to 400°C
  • Combine thyme, honey and butter in small glass dish. Heat in preheating oven until melted and slightly bubbly. Remove from oven and set aside to rest.
  • Trim, wash and dry carrots.
  • Drizzle olive oil over carrots and bake for 13 minutes turning once.
  • After 13 minutes drizzle with thyme butter and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, stirring several times to keep the butter from burning.
  • Salt and serve.
