While I don’t really make official New Year’s resolutions, I am trying my best to make more balanced meals – protein, starch, and vegetable. (It’s the “and vegetbale” that I always forget to plan!)
This side dish goes with just about any protein you choose, and as proven on Budget Bytes, it’s cheap!
For just the two of us I halved the recipe. I wasn’t planning on having leftovers for lunch the next day so didn’t bother making more than we needed. The recipe I present to you today is the halved version, to serve two.
Honey Balsamic Carrots
- 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/8 C balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tbsp butter
- Place carrots on a rimmed baking sheet and toss in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast carrots in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes. Be sure to flip them halfway through the cooking time.
- When there are ten minutes left on the timer, combine the honey and vinegar. Allow tot thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted.
- Toss carrots in the glaze and serve alongside the protein of your choice.
