Roasting Carrots

A DELICIOUS WAY TO MAKE ROASTED CARROTS

A great vegetable side to any meat, this simple Roasted Garlic Parmesan Carrots recipe is the most versatile side dish. It goes great with holiday meats, like Honey Mustard Glazed Ham, or with quick weeknight dinners, like this Creamy Lemon Parmesan Chicken

Butter and salt intensify the natural sweetness of the carrots, but add some garlic and parmesan cheese to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a new favorite veggie side dish. I’ve always said; if you need a way to get your people to eat their vegetables, just add some garlic and butter to the veggies, and throw them in the oven.

…ON a rimmed baking sheet. To be clear. 😊

HOW TO MAKE ROASTED CARROTS

Years ago I posted my recipe for Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots and since then, the emails have poured in with rave reviews. I also get a lot of questions about how to add cheese to the carrots, or if there’s a shortcut to the garlic butter sauce. With this recipe, I hope to answer those questions.

  • First, you want to scrub and clean the carrots.
  • Cut up the carrots in halves or thirds and place them in a large mixing bowl.
  • In the meantime, melt 4 tablespoons butter in the microwave. 
  • Whisk seasonings, salt, pepper, and garlic into the melted butter, and pour over the carrots; toss to coat. I usually just use my hands for this part. 
  • Add grated parmesan cheese; and toss again. 
  • Transfer to a baking sheet and cook.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COOK CARROTS IN THE OVEN?

  • Spread carrots on a rimmed baking sheet and cook in a 425F degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tender. Mix carrots around half way through cooking. 

DO YOU NEED TO PEEL CARROTS BEFORE ROASTING?

  • The short answer is, NO. So long as they are washed and scrubbed, you do not need to peel carrots before cooking. It’s a personal preference; sometimes I do, other times I don’t. 

CAN CARROTS BE COOKED AHEAD OF TIME?

  • Absolutely! Roast your carrots in the oven a day or two in advance and keep them in the fridge in an airtight container.
  • When ready to serve, spread the carrots on a rimmed baking sheet and reheat in a 425F degree oven for 5 minutes.
