Honey Mustard Carrots

Updated on December 30, 2012

My husband isn't a fan of plain veg. I'm happy just to steam some veg and eat them like that, but he finds it boring (a bit like many children I suppose). So I am always looking for new ways to get veg into him or find a way to cook veg that he will like.

One of his favourite things is actually a recipe my mother introduced him to - Honey and Mustard carrots - luckily it's also one of my favourite ways to cook carrots. It may take a while just for some carrots but it is actually really simple and they are so yummy. Plus if your cooking something like a sunday lunch anyway, cooking the carrots doesn't seem to take that long, as its only 2 steps really and then you leave them.

The carrots are sticky and sweet and can guarantee everyone in the family will enjoy them. And the great thing is - I really dislike both honey and mustard but combined them seem to cancel each other and make a totally new flavour!

pie with honey and mustard carrots, garlic roasties and salad


  • 8 large Carrots, chopped into batons
  • 1/2 cup water, boiling
  • 1/3cup runny honey
  • 1tsp english mustard
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  1. Put the carrots into a pot to boil for about 15 minutes or until they just start to soften
  2. While they are boiling mix together all the other ingredients. The honey will dissolve into the boiling water but the mustard won't - thats normal. Put the oven on to 180 to pre-heat.
  3. Once the carrots are starting to soften place them in an oven proof dish (like a casserole dish) and cover them with the honey mustard mixture, stir it all together so they are all coated and place (uncovered) in the oven for 30 minutes
  4. Check them halfway through to make sure they are not catching and stir them around again and replace in the oven to finish cooking
  5. Remove from oven and serve with your sunday lunch or other meals!
