Honey sesame carrots recipe

These honey sesame carrots will dress up even the most boring meal with their sunny colour, vitamins and sweet flavour. A great dish to tempt non-veggie eaters to try carrots.



  • 6 carrots, peeled and cut into batons
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


In a saucepan, cover the carrots with water and bring to the boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 4 minutes.

Drain and drizzle honey over immediately.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.


  • If you don’t have any honey, you can substitute with maple syrup.
  • You may not need all of the honey. Just start with half and see how you go. The steam from the vegetables helps to distribute the honey all over the carrots.
