These carrots are caramelized with honey and topped with feta cheese, for the perfect anytime side dish!


  • 2 pounds carrots scrubbed and cleaned
  • 3 tbsp oil of choice or butter
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • pinch sea salt + more to sprinkle on top
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • pomegranate optional


  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat and add oil/butter.
  • Once the skillet is hot, add the carrots.
  • Give them a nice stir, so they are coated well with the oil/butter.
  • Let them cook for about 5-7 minutes, until they start to get a nice char on each side.
  • Next, add 2-3 tb water and mix well.
  • Reduce the heat to low and place a cover (or plate, upside down) for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the cover (or plate) and give the carrots a final toss.
  • They should look crispy on the outside.
  • Next, remove the pan from heat and stir in the honey and balsamic vinegar.
  • Once the carrots have cooled, then top with the crumbled feta cheese and pomegranate (if using).
  • Enjoy!


If you want to cut the carrots into buttons instead of whole carrots, you can do that. Just cut the carrots into 1/2 inch thick coins and follow the exact directions.
