  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Cut each carrot into three pieces and then cut each piece in half so there is a flat side. Lay carrots, flat side down in a metal baking sheet with sides.
  • In a small bowl whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and brown sugar. Start with 1 tbsp. brown sugar and if you prefer sweeter carrots, add more to taste.
  • Pour vinegar mixture over the carrots and gently tip the pan side to side so that the mixture gets under the carrots.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then roast for 15-20 minutes or until balsamic mixture has thickened and carrots are a deep golden brown and tender. Garnish with some parsley.
  • Serve immediately.


This side dish is a great companion to our Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes or Bacon Wrapped Potatoes with Dill Sauce.
