Ginger Glazed Carrots is one of my favorite Easter carrot recipes and is inspired by a Daphne Oz recipe. The carrots are oh-so-tender, flavorful, and completely perfect for spring, or any season or holiday for that matter. In fact, the kids at my house eat them like candy!

When to Serve Glazed Carrots

Roasted and glazed carrots are perfect for Sunday dinners, and holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. But if you love the sweet and savory flavors of carrots, they are perfect all year.

Ingredients for Ginger Glazed Carrots

These simple yet flavor-packed glazed carrots only require a few ingredients. The exact measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Here’s what you need:

  • Carrots: I like to choose organic carrots and leave about 1-inch of the green tops intact
  • Olive oil
  • Oranges: for zest and juice
  • Garlic cloves
  • Ginger Ale
  • Fresh ginger
  • Hazelnuts (toasted); these are optional but give a delicious crunchy texture to the carrots
  • Fresh parsley

Kitchen Tools

These carrots are sauteed on the stovetop before finishing in the oven. All you need is a large, oven-safe saute pan where you can lay the carrots out in an even layer.

A garlic press is helpful and a zester (or box grater) is needed for the oranges and is helpful with the ginger.

How to Make Ginger Glazed Carrots

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 1: Make the Glaze

In a large bowl, toss the carrots with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Zest and juice an orange, and mince the garlic and ginger (reserve half of the ginger for the garnish). Add to the carrots and toss to coat.

Step 2: Saute the Carrots

Heat an oven-safe saute pan over medium-high heat. Arrange the carrots in an even layer and pour in the ginger ale. Cook the carrots until they begin to brown.

Step 3: Finish in the Oven

Transfer the carrots to the oven and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, or until they are fork-tender and the glaze is reduced. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining orange zest, juice, and ginger. Then add the hazelnuts, parsley, and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the carrots before serving.
