Everybody’s attitude to the carrot is different. Somebody likes it even raw, and somebody finds it disgusting. I’m more of a second type. Not that I can’t stand it raw, it’s just not really my thing.
But in all this, it would be ridiculous to deny that it has a lot of vitamins and useful substances so as to refuse to eat it. So we have to figure something out.
Carrot prepared according to this recipe is a perfect discovery for such fussy eaters as me. It is gentle and sweet, finely baked outside, and soft inside. You can serve it as a snack for a party dinner, or cook just for yourself as a complement to vegetable and meat dishes.
To make it easier for you, keep in mind that you’ll need approximately 1,5-2 carrots per serving.
What You Need to Cook Glazed Carrots with Thyme
- 3 carrots
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 tbsp of soy sauce
- 1 tsp of dried thyme
- Nothing, that you wouldn’t have
How to Make Glazed Carrots with Thyme: Step-by-Step Instructions🔪
STEP 1. HEAT UP THE OVEN TO 200 DEGREES AND PREPARE A MARINADE.
Turn on the convection regime in the oven (the one that is indicated as a fan) and set the temperature regulator on the point 200 degrees. When the oven gives a signal of reaching the needed temperature – turn on the top-bottom regime.
I recommend always to use this method for heating up the oven. Because this way, it warms evenly and faster. If you’re using the top-bottom regime when it gives a 200 degrees signal, most likely it’s reached only 170-180 degrees.
To make a marinade – mix 2 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Finely mix to combine all the ingredients.
STEP 2. SLICE AND MARINADE THE CARROTS
Peel 3 carrots, cut in half longwise and then one more time.
Put the quarters to the big bowl, add marinade there and mix. Leave for 10-15 minutes.
STEP 3. FRY THE THYME ON THE DRY FRYING PAN
Fry 1 tbsp of thyme on the dry frying pan until apparent smell. For about 2 minutes.
STEP 4. PUT THE CARROTS ON THE BAKING SHEET, ADD THYME ON TOP
Preferable to cover the baking sheet with parchment. But, of course, if you like scraping off the burned sugar after, it’s not necessarily.
Leave a bit of space between the carrot slices, add half of the fried thyme on top, and put to the oven.
The baking time can vary from 30 minutes to 1 hour. It’s up to you how much you want it to be baked.
On my photos, it was baking for 50 minutes.
Serve while hot and add the rest of thyme on top.
