Oven Roasted Carrots
One of my favorite carrot recipes is also the easiest. Roasted carrots have a sweet, caramelized flavor that adds a perfect balance to almost any meal. Once you try roasted vegetables, you’ll soon be experimenting with all of your favorites! Don’t stop with carrots, roasted red potatoes, asparagus, broccoli, corn and even roasted beets will have a nuttier and sweeter taste that even the kids will love.
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
fresh grated nutmeg, optional
Preheat oven to 450° F.
- Peel and trim carrots; slice into diagonal chunks. Cut larger carrots in half so that all the pieces will cook evenly.
- Place carrots on baking sheet and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg if desired.
- Toss gently to coat carrots evenly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until just tender and starting to caramelize on pan.
- Serve immediately.
Be sure the carrots are cut into large, equal size chunks for best roasting.
Season lightly and bake until just tender.
