Awesome Roasted Carrots

This recipe is adapted from rachelcooks.

I was not a huge fan of carrots until I tasted them roasted. I was stunned at how delicious they were.


  • 1 pound carrots, preferably with stems, scrubbed and dried, peeled, washed, and dried (I leave unpeeled to retain nutrients)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. For easy cleanup lay a piece of parchment paper on a sheet pan.
  3. Drizzle the carrots with oil, salt and pepper and toss.
  4. Arrange on a single layer and roast 20-30 minutes, flipping when browned on one side. Check after 15 minutes.
