Brown Sugar & Balsamic Roasted Carrots


I really love these roasted carrots.  Coated with brown sugar and Balsamic, they are so tender, sweet and citrusy.
It has chewy texture, which outside is firm and inside is soft.  Brown sugar and balsamic vinegar really go well with carrots and they are simply perfect combination.
I alone finished 500g of carrots and they are so totally yum!

Recipe adapted by
Happy Baking!

500g       Carrots, peels and halved lengthways

2 tbsp     Olive Oil
2 tbsp     balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp     light muscovado sugar

(1)Heat oven to 180°C with fan or 160°C without fan.

(2)Cook carrots in boiling water for 10-15mins, until they are starting to soften, but still have some bite.  Drain and pat dry.

(3)Spread the carrots out in a roasting tin, drizzle with the oil and vinegar, then sprinkle over the sugar.  Season well with sea salt and black pepper, then roast or 45mins, turning occasionally, until the sugar has caramelized and the carrots are soft and tender.

For this month, the theme for Little Thumbs Up is Brown Sugar and Molassses.  Therefore, I’m linking the post to this event which is organised by Zoe (Bake For Happy Kids); Doreen(My little favourite DIY) and for August, it is hosted by Jess (Bakericious)
