An Easy Side Dish

  • Besides being super colorful and healthy, roasting vegetables is a quick and easy way to prep an entire dinner in the oven at once.
  • Roasting veggies in the oven caramelizes the outside of the veggies adding lots of flavor.

Ingredients and Variations

VEGGIES Fresh carrots and broccoli are easy to find year-round. We chose fresh whole carrots, but baby carrots will work.

SEASONINGS Olive oil, honey, and garlic, combined with chili flakes brings out the flavor of carrots and broccoli, or any other roasted veggies!

Be sure to keep the carrots fairly thin and not to cut the broccoli too small so they both cook at the same time. Baby carrots should be halved lengthwise.

How to Roast Broccoli and Carrots

  1. Peel and slice carrots on the diagonal in ¼” slices. Cut the stems away from the broccoli florets and cut them into bite sized pieces.
  2. Make a glaze with oil, honey, minced garlic, and chili flakes (per recipe below). Coat broccoli and garlic, season with salt.
  3. Spread in a prepared baking pan and roast until tender.

Tips

  • Frozen carrots and broccoli will work but won’t brown as well and won’t have the same tender-crisp texture.
  • The glaze can be basted before cooking but also during and after.

Storing Leftovers

  • Keep cooled leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Or, freeze them in quart-sized zippered bags with the date labeled on them and they’ll keep about a month.
  • Leftover broccoli and carrots are great in a soup or stew!
