Smoky Roasted Carrots with Miso Butter – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sweet, smoky and buttery best describe the flavors in this recipe for Smoky Roasted Carrots with Miso Butter.  This dish was inspired by something I had over this past weekend in Austin Texas and I wanted to share my version with you.

Super charred carrots over a habanero sauce was a true delight at Suerte in Austin Texas, however I wanted to create a recipe with that same idea, but a tamer sauce.  Miso butter is a favorite spread that my carrots rest upon after being roasted in a super hot oven until almost blackened.

Charring carrots require a very hot temperature — 450 degrees to be exact, so they can get deep brown and soft on the inside.  The ingredients are simple, and the flavors are divine.  It makes a great side dish, especially with grilled fish or meat.
