Roasting Carrots

October 31, 2013

Incredibly tasty. Cut carrot into 2-3 bite sized pieces. Toss with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Layout onto a baking sheet pan, making sure the carrot pieces are spread out and not touching. If they are too crowded, they will steam and not caramelize & roast. Put into a 400 degree oven, checking every 15 minutes while also moving them around so they cook evenly. Depending on the thickness of the carrots, it could be 45 minutes to an hour. They will turn out super sweet, working lovely as a side dish to a host of things. Like candy. Really good, healthy candy.
