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.
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!

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?
We LOVE roasted carrots too! Going to have to try it with Brussels sprouts soon:-)
@Cindi- Glad you love them too! Definitely try the Brussels sprouts. They're so good!!
Thank you for the reminder to roast vegetables! I used to do this and not sure why/how I got away from it. Roasted asparagus the other night after reading this. Love roasted asparagus!
Yum! I love roasted asparagus too. Glad you made it and let me know!
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 »
Yum! Your herb-infused oil sounds delicious!
Can you freeze the roasted veggies after roasting them?
I’m not sure how they would taste reheated.
