Honey glazed carrots are the perfect way to get the benefit of carrot's vitamins and fibre (although they won't help you to see in the dark) but convince those of us - kids especially - that they can be tasty too. The honey on the honey glazed carrots brings out the veggie's natural sweetness and makes them just that little more palatable, even to those who normally turn up their noses at the very idea. Adding a touch of parsley makes them look even more appetizing in the dish and adds a hint of freshness. Honey glazed carrots will become a family favourite side dish for your roast dinners.
