Balsamic Roast Carrots recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Balsamic vinegar is naturally sweet so it is the perfect pairing to sweet carrots. In this recipe, baby carrots are roasted in oil and balsamic vinegar, along with a little fresh thyme. The perfect side dish and the perfect accompaniment to any roast meat.


  • 225g baby carrots
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. freshly picked thyme leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Line a baking tray with foil.

  2. Toss the carrots with the oil, balsamic, salt, pepper and thyme in a bowl. Tip onto the prepared tray in a single layer and pour over any extra oil and vinegar in the bowl.

  3. Bake for 30 minutes, turn over and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until cooked through to your liking.

You could change the herbs you cook these with if you like - try tossing them with some freshly chopped parsley or coriander once roasted for extra flavour. Recipe serves 2.
