simple roasted carrots.

This recipe is so, so simple that I can’t even really call it a recipe.

But since I’ve received so many requests for quick, easy, healthy, and simple recipes, here you go people!

When I’m making dinner and in a pinch for a quick and impressive side dish, I make roasted carrots in EVOO and salt and pepper.

They look beautiful, they taste like candy, and they require minimal prep work! Plus, a dash of chopped fresh parsley makes them feel gourmet.

I like to leave the skin of the carrots on but if you’re not into the gritty feeling of the skin then go ahead and peel ‘em.

Simple Roasted Carrots
Time: ½ hour
Yield: 1 lb. carrots

Printer-friendly version

  • 1 pound whole carrots, washed (preferably organic)
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Few pinches of sea salt or Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1-2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Remove leaves and stems from carrots. I like to leave the skin on but you can peel if desired. Leave carrots whole or chop into pieces at an angle. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Drizzle carrots with about a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Season with a few pinches of sea salt or Kosher salt and a generous grind of fresh black pepper.

Roast for approximately 25 minutes or until carrots are fork tender (this will vary depending on thickness of carrots).

Transfer carrots to a serving platter and garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
