How to Make Honey Ginger Glazed Roasted Carrots
* The full printable recipe is at the bottom of this post.
In a mixing bowl, add:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup orange juice (and zest)
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp grated ginger (this zester is great and you can use it to zest the orange too!)
Then, pour the oil mixture over the carrots and bake in an oil sprayed baking dish at 400F for about an hour. If you want them done faster, cut them into two-inch pieces and bake them at 400F for about 30 minutes or until tender.
That’s it! It’s so easy!

Do you peel carrots before roasting?
Save time and mess by just washing the carrots and not peeling them but, you certainly can peel them first. It’s up to you.
