    Roasted carrots are a simple, flavorful dish consisting of carrots roasted in the oven with fat and seasonings to help enhance the flavor. There are also other ingredients such as fresh herbs or onions that the carrots can be roasted with to customize it to your liking. While the recipe has few ingredients, when cooked correctly, the taste is outstanding.

    Ingredients You’ll Need

    ingredients to make roasted carrots
    • Carrots – Fresh stem on baby carrots are the best for this dish.
    • Oil – Any oil will work, but I prefer to use olive oil for the best flavor.
    • Garlic – A few garlic cloves help enhance the flavor while roasting.

    Prepare the carrots but trim them, leaving 1” of green steam.
