The Kitchn: My glazed carrots are so special, everyone demands the recipe

James Park, on

Carrots are a truly versatile vegetable. When served raw, they have an earthy flavor and crunchy exterior, and when roasted, they emerge from the oven with beautiful charred spots of caramelization, a sweeter flavor, and a soft, tender texture.

There are so many different ways to prepare roasted carrots, but I’m here to introduce a flavor pairing that may be new to you for carrots: miso! Its earthy, slightly nutty flavor can be used anywhere from a creamy pasta to thumbprint cookies— and now these miso butter glazed carrots. They’re the simple, easy side dish that will be welcome on any dinner table.
