Honey Mustard & Rosemary Glazed Carrots

Say, can one ever eat too many carrots, you think?

It’s crazy the amount of carrots I’ve been eating lately… And I do mean crazy.

There was this one day last week-end when I probably ate close to 2 pounds.


To my defense, I’d been making carrot cake that day and shredded way too many carrots, so I ended up making some version of the The Best Carrot Salad Ever with the extra.

But I didn’t turn orange or anything, so I guess I must be fine…

Now, with that in mind, I guess it will come as no surprise to you that Missuz Carrot would be the one and only star of today’s recipe.

Well… that’s IF we can call that a recipe. To be fair, this is pretty much an almost-non-recipe-recipe!

But food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious, you know.

Seriously, this is sooooo easy, I think a 3 year old could do it.

And can you say pretty?

Oh my, so pretty!

I think I could eat the whole bowlful to myself. Hey, that’s only about 2 pounds worth anyway! 😉

But seriously, this, along with the Smokey Bacon Brussel Sprouts that I made not too long ago, is bound to become one of my favorite side dishes… One that will find its way to my table on a very regular basis, especially when carrots are in season and I can get my hands on beautiful local carrots that have been dug right out of the dirt mere hours before making it to my plate.

Oh, I can’t wait!

Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with parsley and voilà.

Now all you need is a juicy piece of grilled meat to go with that.

  3. In a seperate bowl, mix olive oil, garlic, rosemary, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Mix until very well combined and pour over reserved carrots. Mix to coat evenly and spread in a single layer in a shallow baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, turning once or twice, until the carrots are tender and have taken a nice golden coloration.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve immediately.

    What a great idea adding mustard. I do a whole tray of veggies (carrot/parsnip/courgette/aubergine/onions) for roasting with honey, herbs and soy sauce but I’ve never tried adding mustard. Thank you for the inspiration!

    Hi Sonia! Haven’t left you a comment in a while, but I’m back with a blog of my own now!
    Anyway, these carrots look beautiful. Carrots were one of the very few foods I hated as as kid, but miraculously have warmed up to just in the past few years. So glad I’ve gotten over it, because recipes like this are worth enjoying :)

      Hey, congrats on starting your own blog, Irina! Looks really great! :) There are so many things that I didn’t like as a kid but couldn’t live without today… avocado would be one of them, and seafood, oh, and cheese. Thank goodness our taste in foods evolve as we grow older, else I get the feeling I wouldn’t be posting that many recipes! 😉

    OMG, these look So good! I was already roasting a chicken, so I doubled the glaze recipe. and poured it over carrots, potatoes and pearl onions. My anti-veggie carnivores scarfed it right down! Thank-you!

    I made these last night: AMAZEBALLS!!!!! You know how much I love Dijon Mustard but my oh my these carrots exceed my expectations.
    Not as pretty as yours but so damn good! (Oh, am I allowed to say damn in a comment?) 😉

    • says

      Of course, you’re allowed saying damn in a comment, especially if referring to how good my recipe was! Heck, I think you could even use the F word! 😉

      So happy to hear you liked the carrots, too! And I’m sure that they were much prettier than you’re giving yourself credit for.

      And I still can’t get that image of your Cauliflower Crust Calzones out of my mind… I think I’m obsessed! 😉

    I have to tell you- I don’t really like carrots too much… UNTIL NOW! I think I may have also eaten about a pound of carrots in the last two weeks. I’ve made these 3 times now- even one batch to service dinner guests! I am using a local honey I bought recently infused with rosemary and figs – it is divine. Thanks for this recipe- it’s a KEEPER!

  8. says

    I just made these as a side for my lunch today! The only regret I have is that I didn’t have anyone to share them with. But I’ll make ’em again, and for others!

    • says

      Glad to hear you liked ’em, Traci… And I so totally hear you. I so rarely get to share the food that I make with anyone, but so often wish that I did! Good food is meant to be shared with people you love and care about…
