Perfectly Roasted Carrots! These crispy little roasted carrot sticks are oven roasted and seasoned with Rosemary and Thyme. Perfectly Roasted Carrots are a great side dish, as an afternoon snack with your favorite dipping sauce or on top of your favorite salad. They only take a few minutes to prep, or you can buy them already cut up. Once seasoned, put the sheet pan into the oven and let them cook. I prefer to cook most vegetables in the oven or on the grill. It is easier to cook; you stick them in and allow them to cook, flipping them once or twice. Occasionally I cook them on the stovetop, but I find they need more attention when I do. The oven or grill cooks vegetables perfectly with no sacrifice to flavor.
How to make Perfectly Roasted Carrots:
Start by peeling your carrots, getting the top layer off. Once peeled, cut the carrot into half-inch thick sticks. Add the carrots and remaining ingredients into a mixing bowl. Toss the carrots until everything is mixed together. Once mixed, spread the carrots evenly over a parchment-lined sheet pan. Make sure that the carrots are not touching to ensure they cook evenly. Place the sheet pan of carrots in the oven and cook them for about 20 minutes. Once done cooking, allow the carrots to cool for a few minutes.
Perfectly roasted carrots are the perfect side dish or a delicious afternoon snack. I love to meal prep a big batch and use them throughout the week. They work great on salads and can be perfect for your holiday meal. You can serve them hot or cold, making them great for a summertime dish. I will make them for Thanksgiving or Christmas the day before, taking two minutes off the cooking time. Right before serving, I will put them under the broiler for a minute or two to heat and crisp them up. However, you eat Perfectly Roasted Carrots; I hope you Enjoy them!Print

Made these for the wife and the crowd went wild. I used a wire rack in the convection oven eliminating the flipping. These carrots didn't need any sweetening as the natural sugars really came to life.. 15 to 20 minutes seemed to be just right,still aldente and had a nice snap.
Thank You! So happy they were a success!
