Roasted Carrots With Honey And Feta
Peeled whole carrots cut in half lengthwise and covered in a sweet honey, brown sugar and rosemary glaze. Roast with feta cheese crumbles. Delicious!
- 2 lb package of carrots
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons rosemary
- ½ cup feta cheese crumbles
- pinch of salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Peel carrots and cut them in half lengthwise. (*tip: you can use your veggie peeler to shave down one side of each carrot a little bit to create a flat surface to keep it from wobbling when you cut it in half)!
Line carrots on a baking sheet.
Combine honey, brown sugar, olive oil and rosemary in a small bowl and stir until well combined. Microwave for 15-20 seconds to thin.
Use a boar bristle pastry brush to apply mixture to both sides of your carrots. (a silicone bush can work but boar bristle works better with this thicker honey glaze).
Drizzle any remaining glaze over top of carrots, place pan in the oven and roast for 12 minutes.
Remove pan from the oven and use your pastry brush to soak up glaze and brush it back over carrots. Sprinkle with feta, salt and pepper. Bake for 12 more minutes.
Once carrots can easily be pierced with a fork they are done. Allow to cool and enjoy. Add extra feta, rosemary or honey if desired!
