CROCKPOT CREATIONS

Slow Cooker Honey Roasted Carrots

2018年8月8日

After making slow cooker skinny green beans a few weeks back, I’ve become a little obsessed with using my crockpot to make my veggies for the week.

This week, I filled my crockpot with these colorful carrots, and I’m thrilled with how they came out!

Cooking these carrots in the crockpot were a HUGE hit.  They turned out caramelized and tender, and the perfect side dish for the week.

INGREDIENTS

Slow Cooker Honey Roasted Carrots

1 16-oz. bag of baby carrots

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. honey

2 Tbsp. water

1/4 tsp. black pepper

3/4 tsp. salt

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Add the carrots to your crockpot.  Note:  I used Rainbow Heirloom carrots, but you can use regular ol’ orange ones too.

2.  Add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot, on top of the carrots.  Note:  I cut the amount of olive oil in half to 1 Tbsp.  Next time I make it, I’ll lower the amount to 1/2 Tbsp.  I don’t really see that they needed the full 1 Tbsp, let alone the original 2 Tbsp. ?
