Simply Roasted Carrots

Simply Roasted Carrots

I love making recipes that are difficult and include lots of ingredients – I guess I like a challenge. Sometimes though, I just like to keep it really simple. I recently made dinner and wanted a healthy but simple side dish so I roasted some carrots. I simply seasoned them with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil then roasted them. They turned out fork tender and absolutely delicious. We gobbled up every last carrot and we all thought they were delicious.

  1. Hi Pam:)
    I’ve been roasting a lot of carrots these days too but, I usually steam them before tossing them in the oven. I didn’t think they would have enough roasting time in the oven to soften up. I’ll have to skip the steaming next time and see if there’s a difference.

    Thanks for sharing, Pam…

    P.S. Noah LOVED the mushrooms!!!

  2. I am glad this is a simple recipe. Now that I am thinking about it, it’s not the number of ingredients I find overwhelming if it’s spices. I have most of those on hand and I like spice in food. Anyway these carrots are great.
