Carrots used to be one of my favorite veggies.

They’re sweet.

They’re easy to eat.

They’re perfect for snacking and dipping.

Then my sister developed a severe allergy to carrots, and I stopped using them in my cooking. I always felt bad that if she came over for dinner–even though she wouldn’t be coming for dinner unannounced since we live in different states–that I couldn’t feed her.

Recently, I decided it was time to make some carrots. My sister wasn’t coming to visit. No one at our house has an allergy. And the carrots at the grocery looked stunning.

So I roasted ’em up.

And they were divine.

    Yum!!! I adore carrots but always have a tough time convincing the others at my table. Going to try this as I have a bunch in my fridge that need cooking up.

      I hope that this recipe is able to convince your family that carrots are good stuff! And if nothing else, I hope you thoroughly enjoy them! My little sister is severely allergic to carrots, so we hardly ever eat them, even though she lives in a different state… but when we do, they’re all kinds of good.

    I love making whole carrots for side dishes and to have as snacks throughout the week. These honey roasted carrots sound like an amazing flavor. I can’t wait to try!
