Brown butter is life. I am convinced that it will make everything better. That made me want to create something with this perfect combination! I’ve only made these carrots once and they turned out to be more than perfect. They’re soft, a little crispy, and have just the right taste. My family ate these carrots before we even sat down.

These tried and tested carrots are a perfect accompaniment to your next meal. I promise you will agree that these carrots are the best you have ever eaten! You can find the exact dimensions on the recipe card at the end of the article.

  • Carrots: You can use large carrots and chop them up or use baby carrots instead!
  • Butter: I used unsalted butter in this recipe!
  • Sweetheart: The honey brings a sweet taste without being too much.
  • Garlic cloves: If you don’t have cloves, you can just use chopped garlic! ½ teaspoon corresponds to about 1 clove of garlic.
  • Salt and pepper: I make the most of this, so it’s all a matter of personal preference.
  • parsley: If you want to use this as a garnish, fresh parsley is best!

Let’s make brown butter honey garlic carrots!

I love roasting my vegetables because they give them a tender center and a crispy edge. It only takes about 15 minutes for these carrots to be ready and to really become the star on the dining table.

  1. Preheat the oven and cook the butter: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a medium saucepan, add the butter and cook over medium heat. Keep stirring for a few more minutes until the butter turns frothy and brown. Add honey and garlic and remove from heat.
  2. Seasoning and seasoning: Put the carrots in a large bowl and drizzle with the sauce. Turn until coated and distribute evenly on a large baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake and garnish: Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the carrots are tender. I like to cover the first 10 minutes with foil and then take them out and fry and brown for the last 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.

Do carrots need to be peeled before cooking?

This brown buttered carrot recipe can be made with large carrots or baby carrots. Baby carrots come peeled, so it doesn’t matter. It’s just the big carrots! But when it comes down to it, you never really have to peel carrots. As long as you wash and scrub them well to remove dirt and debris, unpeeled carrots are perfectly safe (and delicious) to eat. Some people don’t like the taste of carrot skin and say it has an unpleasant, bitter taste.

How to do this in advance

These brown buttered carrots are so good and something you’ll want to add to any meal you make! This is how you can save them to eat later!

  • Do in advance: Carrots can be prepared up to 3 days in advance. After you’ve cooked them according to the instructions, wait for them to cool down. Cover them in an airtight container and refrigerate. When you’re ready to eat them, toss them on the stove over medium heat. Stir and toss constantly until the carrots are tender and glazed well. This takes about 5 minutes!

If you loved these carrots, I have a few more recipes that you MUST TRY. They are so good and are also a side dish that goes with almost anything! Carrots are one of the easiest vegetables to cook, which makes them even more attractive! Try some of them, you (and your kids!) Will love them!
