Roasted Carrots

I had never made roasted carrots before, but I needed a veggie to go with dinner, and we had a few bags of carrots that needed to be used. I decided to try roasted them. Something about the fall makes me want to roast everything. Who knows why? There were several things I was not prepared for, 1 they shrink down, 2 they cook pretty quickly I figured the cooking time was wrong, and 3 they are so sweet and delicious. I was very impressed with the natural sweetness my husband even asked if I added sugar to them. They don’t need anything extra they came out perfect!

  • 1lb of carrots cleaned and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. If the carrots are thick, quarter them, if they are thin just leave them whole.
  3. Then cut them in 1 inch pieces. 
  4.  Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. 
  5.  Transfer to a baking pan place the carrots in one layer
  6. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, until browned and tender

Those look fantastic. I love roasted veggies, but almost never cook that way. Must change that. :-)

Same here I wanted to try something new. I don't think my husband really believed I didn't sugar them.

Sounds delish! I am always looking for something different to do with vegetables.
