Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Add carrots to the basket; steam until tender, 14 to 16 minutes.

  • Position oven rack 6 inches from broiler; preheat the broiler to high. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Transfer the carrots to the prepared baking sheet, spacing the pieces evenly on the pan. Flatten each piece with the bottom of a mason jar or sturdy glass. Combine oil, honey, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl; drizzle the mixture over the carrot rounds. Broil until hot and starting to brown on the edges, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with herbs before serving, if desired.
