These Easy Honey Roasted Carrots are a delicious side dish, perfect to make during the festive season. They come with a savoury twist in the form of miso paste, which adds loads of flavour to this simple dish.
I love roasting vegetables and the festive season is the perfect time to do it. You’ll need lots of delicious side dishes to accompany your roast turkey, duck or nut roast. So you might be serving roasted brussels sprouts, roasted sweet potato skins, braised red cabbage or perhaps roasted carrots.
Roasted carrots are a delicious side dish, and today I am sharing my version of this popular classic – Easy Honey Roasted Carrots with Miso.
How to make honey roasted carrots with miso paste
The reason I decided to use miso paste in this roasted carrots recipe was to add more savoury tones to this dish. They go so well with the sweet carrots and honey! The end result is that these carrots are still sweet but they also have a bit of savouriness about them.
So these simple 5-ingredient honey roasted carrots are bursting with flavour!
And the dish literally takes minutes to throw together!
Simply whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth, combine with the carrots, stir thoroughly and toss the carrots onto the baking sheet.
Roast for 35-40 minutes or until the carrots are lightly browned and tender. Serve immediately.
Try to use long and thin roughly similar size carrots, or cut larger carrots lengthways into long strips, if you prefer.
*NOTE: I used white miso paste in this recipe, but you can use any miso paste. Using darker coloured miso might result in your carrots looking darker after 40 minutes in the oven.
What else can you make using miso paste?
Miso paste is best known for being the main ingredient of miso soup, of course, but you can use it to add flavour to lots of dishes. You can use it in stews, casseroles or chillies, whether meat or vegetarian. Miso has a very intense flavour so use it sparingly. One or two teaspoons should be enough to use in a stew for 4-6 people.
I used it in this healthy pulled chicken recipe, which I posted a while ago.

- 800 g carrots, peeled, long and thin, similar size
- 2 tbsp clear honey
- 1 tbsp miso paste, I used white miso but you can use any
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 375 F/ 190 C/ gas mark 5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the honey, miso, oil and vinegar until smooth. Toss the carrots into the bowl and stir thoroughly to coat in the honey mixture.
Place the carrots on the baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes until lightly browned and tender. Half way through increase the temperature to 400 F, brush the carrots with the remaining glaze mixture (if there is any left) and pop back in the oven.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
Miso paste is very salty so there is no need to add salt.
I used white miso paste in this recipe, but you can use any miso paste. Using darker coloured miso might result in your carrots looking darker after 40 minutes in the oven.
