Before you start preparing the carrots, it is important to dry them off. Any remaining moisture will inhibit the cooking process and prevent them from caramelizing properly.
After you have rinsed and dried the carrots, spread them out on a baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, maple syrup and rosemary, season with salt and pepper and toss to evenly coat the carrots.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and roast the carrots for 20 minutes. After the carrots have been roasted, you can then make the balsamic glaze.
While the carrots are roasting, whisk together all of the balsamic glaze ingredients in a small bowl or jar and shake until the oil is emulsified. Once the carrots have cooled, pour the glaze over them and toss to evenly coat the carrots.
Once the carrots are glazed, transfer them to the grill. Depending on the size of your carrots, you may need to turn them multiple times or move them from one side of the grill to the other in order for them to cook through evenly.
This recipe is easy to make and it’s a perfect side dish for any occasion! You can even make them ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them.

How Long to Grill Carrots
Grilling carrots is a great way to add some sweetness and smokiness to your meal. They are also easy to make and a delicious option for a summer or fall side dish.
The trick to making grilled carrots is to make sure they are seasoned well and cooked through. This is done by preparing them before they go on the grill and checking them often to make sure they are not burning or getting charred too quickly.
Before placing them on the grill, coat them with oil. This will help develop a nice char and make sure that the inside of the carrots are not dry.
Once they have been tossed in the oil, place them on the grill and cook for about 15 minutes. This will give them time to develop a good char on all sides. Then, move them to indirect heat to finish cooking them until they are tender.
If you are using a gas grill, be sure to preheat the grill to medium heat before adding the carrots. After the first few minutes of grilling, be sure to turn the carrots frequently so that they get a good char on all sides.
After they have been grilled for about 15 minutes, you can move them to the cooler side of the grill to finish off cooking. This will help the carrots to be tender and cooked through while still maintaining that char on all sides.
You can also serve grilled carrots with a simple lemon sauce. If you want a sweeter flavor, you can add a little honey or maple syrup to the sauce before serving it on top of the grilled carrots.
Another great option is to use a foil pack instead of putting the carrots on the grill directly. The foil will keep the carrots from being prone to burns and ensure that they are all cooked at about the same time.
After the grilled carrots are cooked, brush them with a mixture of butter, brown sugar and honey. You can add a pinch of salt, too. This glaze is the perfect finishing touch for these grilled carrots!
