Roasted Dutch Carrots With Honey and Thyme

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jubes

A Karen Martini recipe from her cookbook "cooking at home'. She suggests that 1 bunch carrots can be substituted by 1 turnip and 2 parsnips, peeled and cut into quarters. A nice vege side for any roast. You could use larger carrots and cut them into halves or quarters instead of baby carrots if wished....though the baby carrots give a lovely presentation

Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

Made your carrots for dinner tonight along with another carrot recipe. I loved the combination of honey and delicate yet flavorful. I did not cook them quite as long, because I wanted to make sure that they remained crisp tender. Served along side chicken that I had cooked in the crock pot and your Green Coriander Rice recipe. Thanks for another keeper...I'll definitely make these carrots again. Made and reviewed for the 49th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.
