One of my favorite carrot recipes is also one of the easiest. Roasted carrots have a wonerfully sweet, caramelized flavor that adds a perfect balance to almost any meal. Once you’ve tried these scrumptious roasted carrots, you’ll soon be experimenting with all of your favorite veggies! 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.

Oven Roasted Carrots
Instructions
  1. Peel and trim carrots; slice into diagonal chunks. Cut larger carrots in half so that all the pieces will cook evenly.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the carrots, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Arrange in a single layer on a sheet pan. Roast in preheated oven 20 - 25 minutes until the carrots are browned and tender. Season with more salt and pepper, if necessary. Toss with minced fresh dill. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

This recipe is perfect just the way it is, but if you'd like to try a nice variation, consider a sprinkle of nutmeg or swap the minced fresh dill for some fresh parsley.

If you want to serve more than one roasted vegetable, make sure that you cut pieces about the same size so that they roast evenly. Also, consider density. For example, carrots will take longer to roast than green beans, so start carrots first, then add the green beans to roast on a separate sheet pan.
