honey glazed carrot recipe.

its been quite some time since ive done a recipe, hasnt it? well, that was sort of intentional. as part of the new content direction ive been working on ive decided that im going to be taking a step back with recipes, and only post the ones that are really, really exceptional. 

like these glazed carrots. 

i threw them together a few weeks ago when we were running low on produce based on what i vaguely remember my aunt saying she put on her carrots at thanksgiving, and oh my goodness, they came out amazing. 

so amazing, in fact, that james said i can just stop making all other roasted vegetables forever and just make these every night. 

the best part is, theyre super cheap (i mean, organic carrots are 99 cents a pound at sprouts), super easy, AND im willing to bet you have everything you need to make them in your pantry right now if you wanted to. 

which im sure you will, because, i mean, look at them:

heres what youll need:

carrots (obviously the amount really depends on how many people youre feeding, we do like a pound or so for the two of us)
olive oil
garlic powder
dried thyme

heres what you do:

preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 

wash, peel, and chop your carrots into whatever shape your heart desires (i do sticks because its faster, but if you really want circles i wont stop you). 

arrange cut carrots in a single layer on a foil-lined cookie sheet (this is where my mom would probably make some kind of comment about how i put them in straight lines), and drizzle with enough olive oil to lightly coat all of the carrots. 

next, lightly drizzle the carrots with honey (not too much, we want this to be more savory than sweet), and then sprinkle with the salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme to your liking. 

bake for 30-40 minutes, flipping once about halfway if you feel like it (not entirely necessary, i usually dont). 

and thats it! super simple, but super delicious!

if you try this one out, please let me know how you like it!
