3-Ingredient Roasted Carrots Recipe With Honey-Lemon Dressing

Carrots are always a fan favorite. This easy roasted carrot recipe has a two-ingredient lemon dressing that adds brightness, freshness and that lemony flavor so many enjoy – plus a touch of sweetness.

The carrots are roasted in the oven until tender and golden. After being whisked together, the lemon and honey dressing is drizzled over the hot carrots. The result is a refreshing carrot side dish everyone will enjoy.

The panko breadcrumbs are optional, but do add a little bit of crunch to the carrots. Sprinkle in as much cayenne as you like to add some spiciness, or omit it completely. Serve this quick and easy carrot dish with chicken, lamb, pork, beef or seafood. They would even be delicious thrown into a salad.
