This week, I’ve been all about the minimal ingredients recipe, as I’ve yet to get to the grocery store.
And one of my favorite go-to quick and healthy side dish recipes to use in situations like these is this Roasted Balsamic Glazed carrots Recipe. It’s so simple, yet so tasty, and it’s such a yummy way to get my toddler to eat more veggies!
When you add up the nutritional stats for these roasted carrots, it comes out to 2 Points, but if carrots are technically 0 Points, then the nutritional stats of the remaining ingredients are only 1 Point per serving. So that’s how I chose to count it. Though, I will double check with my Weight Watchers leader at my next meeting and see which is the correct way to count it. Nonetheless, it’s a delicious and incredibly easy carrot recipe that helps give you more vegetable recipe ideas.
These roasted carrots are a great accompaniment to a great variety of entrees and go on our dinner table quite a bit.

Made these for dinner tonight, and they were absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!
These were delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely be making these more often, as they were very easy as well!
Err, honey isn’t vegan… But I’m not either so I’m making these!
I put the recipe information into the WW recipe builder and it came out to be 2 PP+. I am definitely trying this week.
We made these for dinner and they were amazing!
Made these tonight with dinner, delicious!!! Im not a big carrot fan, but these were fantastic.
they will be 2ppv because when you cook them, even tho carrots are 0ppv, you change the makeup of the food….with the added ingredients….but still worth 2ppv. I’m not a leader, but I am a receptionist for WW….and I have heard this type of question before…love getting your recipes!
Yum these look awesome! I am a huge fan of cooked carrots but I make them the same way every time (just roasted with salt & pepper). I’m definitely going to have to try this!
