CITRUS GLAZED ROASTED CARROTS

There’s nothing sweeter than oven-roasted caramelized carrots. The citrus brightens this dish and pairs well with thyme, another favourite. Use small, multi-coloured baby carrots with the greens on top and add pearl onions to elevate this simple side to 5-star status.

CITRUS GLAZED ROASTED CARROTS

    Ingredients

    • 2 lbs carrots, peeled
    • 1 large lemon, halved
    • 1 small orange, halved
    • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
    • Kosher or sea salt
    • Fresh cracked black pepper
    • 4 Tablespoons honey
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 large orange, juiced
    • 1 large lemon, juiced

    Method

    1

    Preheat oven to 220˚C.

    2

    Peel and cut the carrots lengthwise into 1/4s or 1/6ths according to the size of your carrots.

    3

    On a large, lightly greased sheet pan, toss carrots with olive oil, salt and pepper.

    4

    Place the halved lemon and orange cut-side up in the pan as well, and roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until just tender. Keep a careful watch as cooking time will vary depending on the size of your carrots.

    5

    Remove from the oven and toss with honey, thyme and the juice of the remaining large orange and large lemon.

    6

    Return to the oven and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until caramelized and lightly charred. Serve warm or at room temperature with roasted citrus halves.
