Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Recipe
These glazed grilled carrots are slightly sweet, a little tangy and deliciously charred. This easy recipe allows you to cook them over a campfire, with a charcoal or gas grill. Just toss the carrots in a little oil and salt, grill them and brush with a flavor-packed simple glaze. They make a great side for a delicate fish or chicken main dish. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.
Here’s How To Make This Easy Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Recipe
In a bowl, toss the following:
- 1 bunch (about 1 pound) carrots, scrubbed, patted dry and cut to approximately 4-inch long sticks
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Grill over medium-high heat: Place carrots cut-side down on the campfire grill grate or charcoal grill and cover. If you are using a grill with a cover, perfect. If not, you can use a big pot lid, metal sheet pan or foil as a lid. Grill for 4-5 minutes, until the carrots develop sear marks and are beginning to soften. Flip, cover, and grill for another 4-5 minutes. You want to cook the carrots until they are softened but still have bit of crunch in the middle. In other words, don’t cook them till they are cinders. 😉 LOL
Camp Cooking Tip: Place the carrot sticks perpendicular to the gaps in the grill grate to make sure you don’t lose the carrots in the flames. It is even easier to use a broiler basket or a grill basket if you really want to play it safe and avoid grilling on the risky side. 😉 LOL
Mix glaze ingredients and brush over carrots the last few minutes of cooking:
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
It is easiest to use a Silicone Basting Brush to apply the glaze to the carrots. Make sure you use one that has a high heat temperature rating, especially if you are cooking this Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Recipe over a hot campfire or even a hot charcoal or gas grill. You also want to protect your hands and wrists with Extreme Heat Resistant Gloves when you are cooking in those really hot environments.
One of my favorite recipe pairings for this Campfire Glazed Grilled Carrots Recipe is my Soy And Garlic Grilled Halibut Fillet Recipe. They are both fast, easy and grilled. This makes a great meal after a full day of hiking (or whatever your favorite camping activity happens to be) when you want a yummy meal that requires little prep and cooking time!
