The Best Honey-Balsamic Roasted Carrots (ERMAHGERD!)

By Evelyn

Balsamic roasted carrots are my kids’ favorite. Yes, you read that correctly. My kids not only like this dish, they have come to love it over the years thanks to many tweaks to the original recipe. The recipe you see now has been tried and tested, and I’m proud to say it passes with flying colors. It takes a little over an hour to prep and cook, but the results are well worth it. The honey balsamic glaze really brings out the natural flavors of the carrots and beets without overpowering them.
