Oven Roasted Carrots is an easy and healthy side dish recipe that will get your whole family to eat their vegetables. Use a simple combination of olive oil, salt/pepper, and garlic, OR make my simple seasoning recipe!
2garlic cloves, minced
Optional seasoning Mix:
Preheat the oven to 430 degrees.
Peel the carrots and make diagonal cuts every 2 inches. Extra thick carrots can be sliced in half lengthwise for even cooking.
Drizzle olive oil over the carrots and sprinkle them with salt and pepper, as well as the optional seasoning mix above if desired. Use your hands to toss to coat evenly.
Arrange them on a light baking sheet, leaving space around each one so that they don’t overlap, which can cause them to steam instead of roast.
Roast for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and add the minced garlic if desired. Toss to coat.
Spread them out evenly again and roast for 10-13 more minutes.
Storage: Refrigerate for up to 5 days. You can freeze them for up to 3 months, just note that their texture won’t be as crisp when reheated.
