Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut off all but 1-inch of the carrot tops, leaving a little green. Put the carrots in a large shallow pan, add the oil, and season with salt and pepper. Turn to coat the carrots. Stick them in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, until the carrots are fork-tender.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Swirl the pan around and cook until the butter begins to become brown and nutty. Squeeze in the juice from the orange halves, add the zest, brown sugar, cumin and cinnamon and continue to cook for 2 minutes or until syrupy.

Remove the carrots from the oven, drizzle the orange brown butter over the carrots and serve.

I was looking for some vegetable to complement my steak and mashed potatoes. These carrots were very easy to make and the taste was sensational. Everyone had seconds and were very happy!!! I didn't have the type of carrots called for so I used baby peeled carrots and sliced them in half lengthwise. GOING IN MY RECIPE BOX RIGHT NOW. They are definitely on the Thanksgiving menu!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched the video and it appears that Tyler didn't add any cinnamon. Any thoughts from the testers out there on what they thought about using/not using cinnamon? item not reviewed by moderator and published
A hit with all my guests. They have requested it again this year. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious. Even non-carrot lovers would like it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked them a lot! Use about 1/3 of the butter that the recipe calls for and cut the "root" end off the carrots. They looked a little too rustic with them on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe provided does not reflect the video as Tyler did not use cinnamon in the video and the instructions were different than what was demonstrated in the video. My carrots didn't turn out as I expected but I think that if I had followed the video, it would have been much better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cummin just killed the carrots for me. If I make them again, it's without the cummin. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe's so easy and everybody loved it! They were gone fast! I made it at my holiday party last year, and my friends still couldn't stop talking about it these days. They are great alternatives to sweet potato which I personally dislike. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
