honey roasted carrots

delicious! honey and orange help bring out the natural sweetness of these beauties
adapted from delicious

1 lb carrots (I used a bunch of small carrots with the tops still on but baby carrots or large would work fine) , cleaned and trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil (or melted butter)
2 tablespoons honey
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
freshly grated orange zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lay the carrots in a single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and mix until the carrots are evenly coated.  Drizzle with honey and season with salt and pepper.  Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the carrots are just tender.  If you’re using regular carrots in lieu of baby carrots – then slice them in about 1/4 inch slices.   Turn the carrots once or twice for even baking.  Transfer the carrots to a serving dish and sprinkle with freshly grated orange zest.
