Roasted Carrots are sweet and caramelized and pair well with beef, chicken or Easter ham.
Roasting is my favorite way to prepare vegetables. Roasting creates caramelization which brings out the natural sweetness that is so delicious. These carrots are tossed in a maple syrup and ginger dressing and roasted to perfection. Pair these carrots with an Easter ham or any holiday entree. These carrots are also delicious served with Crock Pot Corned Beef.
These carrots don’t require much prep – just peel and cut the larger ones in half lengthwise. Toss in the glaze and bake. That’s it! No fuss, quick and easy.
