Miso Balsamic Roasted Carrots

One of the easiest ways to change up your weeknight dinners is to switch up your veggie game. Roasted veggies are so easy to whip up, and can be flavored in endless ways.

These roasted carrots are tossed in a simple miso balsamic glaze that caramelizes the carrots in the oven, and seriously tastes so delicious.

These carrots are delicious on their own as a snack, or served with nearly any main course. I love them with my pistachio crusted salmon or with my lentil veggies burgers, but its hard not to eat them straight out of the pan 🙂

How to make miso balsamic roasted carrots

  1. Start by peeling your carrots. You can leave them whole or cut them into 1-2″ chunks. Baking time may vary if you slice them into smaller pieces
  2. Season the carrots with salt, pepper and olive oil
  3. Make your miso marinade by mixing together miso paste, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and a pinch of salt
  4. Toss the carrots in the miso glaze, and roast them until crisp and tender

If you wanted to prepare the carrots ahead of time, you can let them marinate in the glaze for a few hours, and roast them right before dinner time!

These carrots are simple and delicious- you guys are going to love them!

  1. Can I make ahead and reheat? Or serve cold?

    • Yes to both! You can slightly underbake them so that they get perfectly crisp when reheating in the oven, or serve them cold/room temp
