These easy honey glazed 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.
Preheat the oven to 375 F/ 190 C/ gas mark 5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine the honey, miso, oil, vinegar and onion granules and stir until smooth. Pour over the carrots and stir thoroughly using a pastry brush (optional) to coat evenly. Season with pepper.
Place the carrots on the baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes until lightly browned and tender. Half way through turn them over and increase the temperature to 400 F/ 200 C.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
Carrots: Try to use long and thin roughly similar size carrots, or cut larger carrots lengthways into long strips, if you prefer.
Miso: 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. Miso paste is very salty so there is no need to add salt.
Glaze: You can prepare the glaze in advance and refrigerate, covered, overnight. Give a good stir before combining with the carrots.
Use a large baking sheet so the carrots are not squashed together.
