  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 18x13-inch rimmed pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix melted butter, honey, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, the salt and pepper until blended. Add carrots to pan. Top with butter mixture; toss to coat.
  • 3
    Roast uncovered 15 minutes, then stir. Roast 13 to 18 minutes longer or until carrots are tender and browned. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar; stir carrots in pan. Immediately remove carrots from pan. Top with parsley.
  • If your carrots are very thin, cut in half lengthwise instead of quartering.

Expert Tips

  • Try experimenting with other herbs, such as fresh thyme or sage. Just keep in mind those herbs are stronger than parsley, so you won’t need as much.
  • Always read the labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian. Products and ingredient sources can change.
