Roasted Carrot Recipes So Delicious They’ll Steal the Show at Thanksgiving
Roasted Carrots with Calimyrna Fig Dressing
Whole roasted carrots make quite a statement on the dinner table when they're topped with a port wine-and-fig dressing. In this recipe, we like dried Calimyrna figs because they're a tad less sweet than Mission figs and taste slightly nutty as well.
Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Sage Brown Butter
Wow your guests with multicolored carrots dressed in a brown butter and sage sauce. They only take 15 minutes to roast, so pop them in the oven while you carve the turkey and they'll be ready in time to eat.
Roasted Carrots with Garlic Confit & Thyme
Jump-starting the browning on the stove helps bring out the carrots' sweetness in this healthy vegetable side recipe. The addition of butter, thyme, garlic and just enough lemon makes these roasted carrots extra special. Serve with grilled steak and mashed potatoes.
Garlic & Parmesan Roasted Carrots
Roasting carrots in the oven brings out their inherent sweetness, while Parmesan and garlic give this easy side dish a flavorful savory accent.
Balsamic Roasted Carrots
Roasting carrots brings out their sweetness, which is enhanced further with a tangy balsamic and maple glaze. Serve them straight-up for an easy weeknight side dish or garnish with chopped hazelnuts for holiday meals and dinner parties.
Sweet & Spicy Roasted Carrots
A little bit of cayenne adds an unexpected kick to these classic roasted carrots.
Hasselback Moroccan Roasted Carrots
Take roasted carrots to the next level with this hasselback version of a vegetable-side favorite. Adding thin hasselback cuts to whole carrots not only allows more flavor to seep into the veggies, it also speeds up the cooking time.
Maple Roasted Carrots
Roasting brings out the inherent sweetness in carrots—but add a little maple syrup and butter and you have a caramelized vegetable your kids (and you!) will actually want to eat seconds of.
Roasted Carrots with Cardamom Butter
Roasting these carrots with only a bit of butter and some cardamom gives them a rich, nutty flavor that belies how healthy they are. A single serving gives you over 600 percent of the daily recommendation for vitamin A!
Orange-Caraway Glazed Carrots
Some cooks recommend sprinkling sugar on top of carrots to glaze them, so that it will marry with the natural juices in the carrots to create the perfect glaze. But you can't predict how much liquid will come out of a vegetable, so Chef Naomi Pomeroy developed a more controlled technique in this healthy carrot recipe to yield a deeper and richer flavor.
