  • 4 cups baby carrots or regular carrots, cut into inch chunks - approximately
  • 2 cups shallots or onions, cut into chunks or pearl onions, peeled approximately
  • 1 - 3 tblsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 - 2 tblsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tblsp balsamic vinegar -


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet lined with tinfoil and a light coating of cooking spray.  Set aside.

  2. Wash, peel and slice carrots and whichever onions you are using and place it all into a large bowl. Gently toss with olive oil until totally coated.
  3. Arrange carrots and onions in a single layer on the prepared pan. Roast in oven for 25 minutes. 

  4. Combine brown sugar, garlic and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. The mixture will be thick.
  5. Remove pan from oven. Drizzle mixture over carrots and onions and toss gently until coated. The heat from the pan will thin the mixture as you coat the carrots and onions. Return to oven for another 10 minutes and then toss vegetables again if desired. Bake for 10 more minutes or until vegetables are as tender as you like them and caramelized. Toss again before serving and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
