Sweet Rainbow Carrots

Jump to Recipe

Howdy folks! 😊

I know the favourite way to eat carrots in these parts is to have them boiled 🙈, and that’s ok – But, other than the fact that most vitamins are water soluble and would be lost in the cooking water, I feel like boiling takes away some of the great taste too! 🤭

Roasting vegetables on the other hand, is one way to prevent loss of nutrients, but also to intensify the flavour- as the reduced moisture content allows the flavour/taste of the flash to get concentrated 😉

And carrots can be just as delicious roasted! 😋

Better yet, roasted in a balsamic honey glaze, sprinkled with Thyme….The flavour in this simple dish will surprise you! 😊 🥕 Carrots will never be the same again. 👌🏾

These Rainbow carrots are not just pretty to look at in all their lovely colours, but delicious too! 😋

Cooking time




  • 800g Rainbow carrots

  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper

  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

  • 1 Tablespoon Honey

  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil


  • Wash the carrots, making sure to remove any dirt and stringy roots. You don’t need to cut them up, if they are this size. Set aside to drain of excess water. 😊 Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  • Proceed to prepare the glaze. 😋 In a bowl, mix the Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and honey.
  • Whisk together until well combined 👌🏾
  • Transfer the carrots to a bowl, and put in the glaze. Keep turning until the carrots are well coated. 😊
  • Also, separate some fresh Thyme leaves from their stems, and set aside. 😊
  • Transfer the carrots to a roasting pan, and sprinkle the Thyme leaves on top. They will add extra flavour, and go well with the sweet carrots 😊 Roast for about 20 minutes in the oven before turning them over and then roasting them for another 15-20minutes on the other side. 😊
  • Once they are ready, serve and enjoy as a side to your favourite meal! The carrots would be sweet and delicious! 😋👌🏾
