Roasted Carrots with Fresh Thyme
Healthy Side Dish
"Carrots are an inexpensive, all-purpose root vegetable that is often overlooked. This delicious dish is a cinch to prepare."
-- Emeril Lagasse
Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Place a medium oven-proof saute pan over high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the carrots, salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Add the thyme sprigs and butter, and drizzle with the honey.
Transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the carrots are golden and crisp-tender.
