I wrote a poem tonight. Check it out...
Carrots are orange.
Carrots are yummy.
Don't you think
They should be covered in honey?
I'm notoriously horrible about fixing exciting main dishes with boring side dishes. Side dishes just take so much effort! At least that's what it seems like.
But these carrots are incredibly easy - less than 5 minutes prep. And another thing I love...they are the perfect recipe to involve the kids in! Miss Pebbles enjoyed combining the ingredients and stirring. And, because she helped, she actually ate one! That's a win in my book!
All you do is combine baby carrots, olive oil, thyme, honey, and salt in a bowl. Easy peasy.
Stir everything to get the carrots coated and then toss them in a roasting pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until they are tender.
Serve them up and enjoy!
