Honey-Glazed Carrots + Lemony Broccolini

Updated: Mar 28

A couple of easy and tasty side dishes to serve alongside your Easter lamb (they'll go great with other mains as well if you're not serving lamb). And if you have any leftovers, these are great in a salad for lunch the next day!



You'll Need:


HONEY-GLAZED CARROTS

200g carrots

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon honey (maple syrup is also fine)

2 tablespoons lemon juice

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Salt and pepper to taste


LEMONY BROCCOLINI

200g broccolini

1½ tablespoons olive oil

1-2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Zest of half a lemon

Salt and pepper to taste


Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C.


Wash and prepare carrots and broccolini (cut carrots in half lengthwise if large), and arrange on two baking trays.


In one small bowl, mix together olive oil, honey, lemon juice, nutmeg, salt and pepper, and drizzle over carrots.

In another bowl, mix together olive oil, crushed garlic, lemon juice, zest, salt and pepper, and drizzle over broccolini.


Roast carrots for around 25-30 minutes, adding the tray with broccolini to the oven about halfway through (the broccolini will only need around 10-15 minutes).


Optional serving suggestion: sprinkle over chopped raw nuts or seeds (walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts go well!).
