Simple Roasted Carrots

This one is calledĀ “Simple Roasted Carrots” because all it is, is: carrots plus 3 or 4 ingredients that you already have at home. Simple, isn’t it?

The Recipe:
12 carrots
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly groundĀ black pepper
Optional: 2 tbsp. fresh dill or parsley, minced

1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. If the carrots are thick, cut them in half, lengthwise (otherwise, leave whole).

3. Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.

4. Transfer to a sheet pan (in 1 layer) and roast 20 minutes, until browned and tender.

5. Toss the carrots in the dill or parsley; season to taste and serve.

Simple Roasted carrots

My Experience:

See, isn’t that easy? I even skipped the dill/parsley step because I didn’t have any. And guess what? The carrots were still fantastic!

If your carrots are really thick, you can also slice them diagonally in 1 1/2 inch slices instead. Do as you wish.

Roasted veggies are such a simple, go to side dish for any main. I haven’t found a veggie yet that I don’t like tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper; then roasted in the oven until browned and tender.

Give it a try!
