Five Ingredient Honey Glazed Carrots and Sweet Potato

Five Ingredient Honey Glazed Carrots and Sweet Potato

We love our Sunday roasts and love getting creative with the side dish that goes with our roast.

This week I took the humble carrot and sweet potato and cooked them slowly in a honey glaze.  The end result was super soft and lightly sweet strips of carrot and sweet potato that went down a treat with our roast chicken and mashed potato.

INGREDIENTS

3 Large Carrots, peeled
2 Medium Sweet Potatoes, peeled
1 Onion, peeled and sliced
2 Tbs Butter, cubed
1/4 Cup Honey, melted
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Optional: Sesame seeds to serve

LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

  1. Cut the carrot and sweet potato into thin strips.
  2. Line the base of an oven proof dish with baking paper.  Add the strips of carrot and sweet potato and the onion.
  3. Pour in the melted honey (simply microwave for 20 seconds), season with salt and pepper and then give then a good toss to coat evenly.  Add the cubes of butter and place the lid on to the dish.
  4. Place into a 180 degree Celsius oven for 1 hour and then uncover and turn the oven up to 200 degree Celsius to cook for a further 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before serving.

Serves 4 – 6
