Servings 6 people


  • 2 lbs. carrots peeled and uniformly sliced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp. olive oil light tasting
  • ¼ tsp. salt optional
  • ¼ tsp. pepepr optional


  • Peel and slice the carrots into similar size. About 1 ½ inch in length.
  • Place in a shallow bowl and pour over the melted butter, oil and brown sugar. Mix to coat well.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 400 F oven for 15-20 minutes, tossing the carrots halfway through.
  • Remove and transfer onto a serving dish. You can garnish with fresh chopped parsley if you like.


  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Cover to cook with foil wrap for 10 minutes if you like your carrot extra tender but cook uncovered for 5-10 minutes to obtain the grown glaze.
  • Try to chose a bag where the carrots are about the same thickness so they can cook evenly when you bake.
  • If the carrots are thicker towards the end you can always cut it in half to reduce the thickness.
  • You can also slice the carrots into coins, they'll take less time to cook.
  • You can add a tiny pinch of cinnamon powder if you like but I just keep mine as simple as possible!
  • Toss the carrots halfway through cooking.
  • You can substitute honey or maple syrup for the brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle on some fresh parsley for a pop of freshness - plus it looks lovely!
