Roasted carrots with pecans and honey-butter

These roast carrots are perfect if you’re looking for a quick and easy veg to serve with dinner. I made them to go with our Thanksgiving meal, and they were delicious.

Here’s what you’ll need:

carrots (I used 16 in this dish)

3 tablespoons of grapeseed or olive oil

kosher salt



1/4 cup toasted pecan pieces

1 tablespoon salted butter

1 tablespoon honey

Slice carrots on a diagonal, into chunky pieces.

Drizzle 3 tablespoons of oil over the carrot pieces.

Next toss in about 1~1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, 1 teaspoon ground pepper, and about 1/4 teaspoon of thyme.

Toss the carrots until well coated and turn them out on to a cookie sheet in one layer.

Run them into a preheated oven at 400′ for 20-30 minutes or until roasted with brown edges.

The carrots do shrink while roasting. “Do girls know about shrinkage?” (what’s that from)

Heat 1 tablespoon of butter with 1 tablespoon of honey and pour over the hot carrots.

Toss in 1/4 cup of roasted pecan pieces, and gently fold to combine.

    Seinfeld!!! Right? Although, my definition of shrinkage is what my clothes do magically in the closet. Lovely carrots, too!
