Roasted carrots are one of my absolute favorite veggie sides. I love them on their own with a few simple seasonings, but they’re even better with the sweet honey sriracha glaze.

Enjoy them as a snack, or serve them as a side with your favorite meal.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, these honey sriracha carrots are the perfect side dish to prep!

It’s no surprise that I’m all about the side dishes during Thanksgiving. They always pack in the most flavor, and just bring the meal together so well.

These carrots are roasted to perfection, then tossed in a simple sweet & spicy glaze. They’re seriously addicting.

How to make honey sriracha roasted carrots

  1. Start by roasting the carrots with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder until browned. This brings out their sweetness and gives them the ideal texture
  2. While they finish roasting, prepare your glaze by melted butter in a pan with garlic, then whisking in the honey and sriracha.
  3. Once the carrots are ready, toss them into the pan with the glaze until they’re evenly coated

Simple, delicious, and SO GOOD!

I can easily eat this entire portion in one sitting, so be sure to double the recipe if you’re feeding a large crowd! I can’t wait to hear what you guys thinks. 🙂

NOTES: for a larger crowd, I suggest using at least 2 lbs of carrots and doubling all of the ingredients.


  • 1 lb 1 carrots, peeled

  • 2 tbsp 2 olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 salt

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 black pepper

  • Honey Sriracha Sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp 1.5 butter, regular or vegan

  • 2 tbsp 2 honey

  • 1 tbsp 1 sriracha

  • 1 clove 1 garlic, crushed

  • Pinch salt, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Slice your carrots into 2 inch pieces and add them to a sheet pan.
  • Toss them together with the olive oil and spices.
  • Bake for 20 minutes on the middle rack. Remove the pan from the oven, flip the carrots and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  • While they finish baking, add the garlic to a saucepan with the butter on medium heat and cook until the butter melts and the garlic is fragrant, for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add in the honey, sriracha and a pinch of salt and lower the heat. Mix together until smooth.
  • Once the carrots are ready, Add them into the pan and toss them in the sauce.
  • Serve fresh with chopped cilantro.

    Hi Gal! Is there a substitute for butter or vegan butter? Like another oil?

    • You can use olive oil! i personally prefer the texture of the melted butter but it would still taste delicious!

    Absolutely delicious recipe! Made this last night with some burgers and they were fingerlicking good! Definitely adding to my collection of favorite sides.

  4. Can I prepare these ahead of time and reheat? If so, what temp to reheat?

    • Hey Karen, for best results I suggest mixing the glaze with the carrots when you’re ready to serve it, so the carrots can be reheated on their own at 350 for around 10 minutes or so. If you needed to prepare the glaze ahead of time with the carrots, it can be reheated the same way at 350 until warm.
