These simple Honey Balsamic Roasted Carrots with Thyme are sweet, savory, and perfectly caramelized for one delicious carrot dish.
As we head full force into Thanksgiving week, I find that people fall into one of two camps. Camp one has had their menu planned for weeks and did all their grocery shopping over the weekend. Camp two is just starting to plan, or panic, about their menu. I wholly fall into group two and never seem to get things planned out in advance, even though I spend hours perusing recipes. It's a character flaw that I literally need a mountain of pressure and impending doom to get anything done. I just work better under pressure, or at least that's what I tell myself.
However this year I was forced to get my act together a little early since we hosted our first ever Friendgiving. I was responsible for the turkey ( I made this dry brined version and it came out amazing), mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, these carrots, and a dessert that I will be sharing on Wednesday. The carrots were a bit of an after-though when I realized we didn't have enough veggies on the menu and they ended up being one of my favorite things. The sweetness of the carrot makes it the perfect thing to roast until it is nicely browned and caramelized. Then tossed with a flavorful honey, savory balsamic, and earthy thyme - they are delicious.
