Sick of boiled, canned, and raw carrots?  Here’s our favorite recipe for roasted carrots.  The secret is to bake them at a high temp with a little bit of oil, salt, and pepper.

Recipe for Roasted Carrotsrecipe for roasted carrots

Roasted carrots taste totally different than any other kind of cooked carrot.  In a totally delicious, I can’t believe I love carrots, kind of way.

Carrots just get so sweet and soft in the oven.  My husband and I love the taste and texture of roasted veggies and our almost-3-year-old does too.  (So why mess with a good thing?)

I swear even the non-carrot-eaters in your life will love them.  And you’ll love how easy the recipe is.  Enjoy!

Recipe for Roasted Carrots

Ingredients

  • One pound of carrots, peeled and chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Combine ingredients in a casserole dish or baking pan and place in oven.
  • Bake, stirring every 15 minutes or so, until cooked through (about an hour).

These roasted carrots would taste great with my sweet & spicy bbq chicken or cranberry pork roast.

We also love to roast green beans, broccoli, and potatoes.  Personally, I love roasted brussel sprouts, butternut squash, beets, and asparagus…but they’re not as big of hits with the rest of my family.

Tell me: What’s your favorite roasted vegetable?

roasted veg are the best! I do not put plain oil on my veggies before roasting, i have a bottle of oil in the fridge that i have added some herbs to – what ever is in the garden: slightly crushed garlic cloves, thyme, sage, oregano. One bottle usually last all winter. otherwise, you can just add the herbs to your oil/veggies & let stunt for a bit before roasting. My favourite veggies to roast are sweet potato & butternut pumpkin (not sure what you call those state-side?) Unfortunately it is now summer here & too hot to even think… Read more »

Can you freeze the roasted veggies after roasting them?
