Oven Roasted Carrots

Oven Roasted Carrots

2 lbs.baby carrots (or whole carrots peeled and sliced)
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher or Sea salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  I usually give my carrots a rinse and pat dry if they are still wet (you can just use them straight from the bag if you prefer).  Place carrots on a foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over them, then sprinkle on as much salt and pepper to fit your taste.  Give them a toss to make sure all the carrots has a good coating. Roast in hot oven for about 25-30 minutes (I give it a turn halfway through).

**Another variation is to add a light drizzle of honey plus a Tbsp. of Balsamic vinegar over carrots when done cooking. That kicks the flavor up a notch. It's really good so don't knock it til you try it. Here is how it looks done that way:

Tajuana, I'm always looking for new ways to prepare carrots beyond steaming and microwaving. Thanks for this yummy suggestion.

I replied to this post but I think I forgot to actually submit it. Lol!
I had said that I'm needing new ways to make carrots. I usualy steam or nuke them. Thanks for the tip!

Hi Regina, you are so welcome! LOL I should have read both comments carefully before hitting publish. We LOVE carrots, but I try to find a handful of ways to cook them for a little variety ;-)
