Whiskey-Glazed Roasted Carrots Side Dish Recipe (7 Ingredients, 40 Minutes) by 30Seconds Food

Whiskey-Glazed Roasted Carrots Side Dish Recipe (7 Ingredients, 40 Minutes)

Looking for a fresh new vegetable side dish? Carrots are always a good choice for a dinner side dish, but especially at Easter. Carrots just go with the Easter theme! This roasted carrots recipe has a boozy glaze with a hint of orange and thyme. It's delicious and really easy to make.

Cut carrots are roasted in the oven until tender. While the gluten-free carrots bake, make a simple, delicious glaze on the stovetop with whiskey, brown sugar, butter, orange juice and fresh thyme. When the low-calorie, low-sodium carrots are tender, pour the tasty glaze into the casserole dish and toss to coat. Garnish with more fresh thyme to make it pretty!

You could use any herb for this baked carrots recipe. Fresh parsley, rosemary, oregano, chives (or a combination) add so much freshness to the dish. If you prefer cooking with baby carrots, no problem! Prefer bourbon over whiskey? Make the simple switch.

Serve these whiskey-glazed carrots for dinner as a side dish with chicken, beef, lamb, pork, seafood or that Easter ham.
