Sweet & Tangy Glazed Carrots

Whole carrots tossed in a blend of seasonings, glazed with a sweet and tangy balsamic-agave mixture, and roasted to deliciousness. 

So here's a fun fact - I didn't like carrots until I was 24-years-old. I'm 25 now... That's only one year of my existence that I have enjoyed eating carrots. What was wrong with me? They're the bomb-dot-com! And now one of my favorite foods. 

Oh yeah, and did you know that carrots delay the aging process? Cha-ching! So with that being said, here is a yummy roasted carrot recipe that will have you eating carrots like it's nobody's business.

What You'll Need:

  • 2 pounds carrots, rinsed and scrubbed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 3-4 sprigs fresh thyme)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Place carrots in a large rimmed baking dish. Add olive oil, thyme, and salt & pepper. Toss until well combined. Bake for 15 minutes.
