  • Rimmed Sheet Pan


  • 2 pounds carrots
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 TBSP honey local if you can get your hands on it
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Flaky sea salt for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place a large rimmed baking sheet into the oven as it preheats.
  • Meanwhile, peel and chop the carrots into 1-inch chunks. Set aside.
  • In a large glass bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add in the carrots and stir to coat.
  • When oven is preheated, (carefully) pour the glazed carrots onto the hot baking sheet. Carefully spread into a single layer.
  • Roast carrots in preheat oven for 45 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes. Or until carrots are fork tender and show some charring.
  • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and parsley before serving.
  • Store any leftover carrots in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.


  • If you don’t like spice – don’t worry! These carrots are just as delicious without cayenne and it can simply be omitted.
