  • Garnish with additional butter, and fresh parsley, if desired.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Boil the carrots for approximately 15 minutes or until soft. Strain.
  2. Place carrots into a large mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher.
  3. Add butter, honey and lemon juice. Mash carrots once more. (If you want the carrots to be super smooth, you'll need to use a blender or food processor).
  4. Season with cinnamon, and salt and pepper, if desired. Mix to combine. Serve immediately.

This sounds amazing, except that I oven roast pretty much all of my veggies. I wonder how I could adapt this to still use honey and cinnamon (without burning the honey)?
Samantha Aleman
You could probably roast your carrots how you normally would, and then when they are almost done (with maybe 5 minuted to go) drizzle the honey and sprinkle the cinnamon on. I haven’t tried it this way, so I don’t know if it’ll work, but if you try it - do let me know how it turns out!

This looks so delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
