We have an excess of potatoes and carrots right now so I came up with a new recipe. I really enjoyed the slight sweetness and lemon and so did hubby. The glaze ads a few calories to the recipe but I think they are worth it!
Roasted Rosemary Glazed Carrots & Potatoes
16 oz. baby carrots
1 lb. potatoes, cut in chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large roasting pan toss carrots and potatoes with olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt. Place in oven. About 20 minutes (halfway) into the cooking, I added the glaze. How to make the glaze:
In a small saucepan combine butter, brown sugar, lemon juice and rosemary. Place over medium heat stirring often. Heat the mixture until it starts to boil and the sauce thickens. Remove vegetables from the oven and pour glaze over top. Return vegetables to oven and continue baking. The vegetables need to cook about another 20 minutes or until soft.
- Use other root vegetables such as parsnips or sweet potatoes.
- Great served as a side dish for pork loin or a beef roast.
