A simple side dish that packs a lot of flavors, these Honey Cumin Roasted Carrots are sweet, savory, and so delicious. They're simple enough to serve on a weeknight, yet beautiful enough to serve as a side dish for a holiday dinner.


Units Scale
  • 1-1/2 pounds of rainbow carrots, sliced on the diagonal about 2” long
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons mild honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt, more to taste (see note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 and set a rack in the middle.
  2. Add the carrots to an oven safe baking dish.
  3. Add the remainder of the ingredients to the dish and toss to coat. It’s okay if there are pieces of butter scattered throughout, as they will melt in the oven.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, stirring the carrots half way through, until the carrots are tender.
  5. Serve immediately.


This recipe was tested using Diamond Crystal coarse kosher salt. If you use Morton's kosher salt or fine salt, decrease by half for volume.
