Oven-Roasted Carrots

oven-roasted-carrotsPete makes juice using carrots, apples, and ginger all the time. He has it down to a science, really.

But sometimes, I like to have carrots in its purest form. I’ll peel carrots and just enjoy them that way, but never with dinner. At dinner, I have to dress them up a little bit. So now, I’ll make Pete’s Oven-Roasted Carrots recipe. He made them for me once and I liked them so much that I actually make them all the time now.

After you try this recipe once, you’ll be making them all the time too.

Pre-heat the oven to 400.

Chop the ends off the carrots, then slice them in half. You don’t need to peel these, which saves you a ton of time.

Place them cut side down on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.

Bake for 35 minutes, until the carrots are tender.

I served these with a kale baked ziti, but you can serve it with almost anything.

    Great recipe! I love carrots. I laugh that I eat so many carrots that I am probably orange. I look forward to the house cooling down and adding this recipe to the rotation in the fall. Not peeling them is a great time-saving tip.

    These look yummy! I always need new ideas on how to cook veggies, so I’m totally giving this a try. I always steam my carrots, but I’m not sure why I never thought to roast them. :-)

    I love carrots. I only tried roasting them once and I messed up the texture. Need to try again. And anytime you feel like posting that kale baked ziti recipe? LMK! Thanks for linking up to #SaucySaturdays.

    Roasted carrots seem to increase in flavor and are nice and sweet. The seasonings you use would make them so good.

    I really do like carrots, but usually by the time I’m done “dressing them up,” they are no longer such a healthy option. This recipe, however, looks both yummy and healthy!

    I love Italian seasoning on so many dishes, but I’ve never thought to use it on carrots. Sounds tasty!
