Roasted Carrots

Thoughts Before Cooking:

I was going to a potluck and needed to make something, but had very little in my fridge-and no money as I was waiting for a new debit card and my work hours don’t work well with my bank’s hours.

I had just bought a huge bag of carrots, so I decided to look up a carrot recipe. I searched through google, and when I saw Ina Garten, I thought why not try it out as Barnes and Noble has been promoting her like crazy. It comes from Food Network

Ingredients:

  • 12 Carrots
  • 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1-1/4 Teaspoons of Salt
  • 1/3 Teaspoon of Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons of Minced Fresh Dill or Parsley

Directions:

  1. Preheat the Oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. If the carrots are thick, cut them in half lengthwise; if not, leave whole.
  3. Slice carrots diagonally in 1-1/2 inch thick slices. (The carrots will shrink when cooking, so make the slices big.)
  4. Toss in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  5. Transfer to a sheet pan in 1 layer and roast in the oven for 20 mins-until browned and tender.
  6. Toss the finished carrots with minced dill or parsley, season to taste, and serve.

Thoughts After Reading:

So I took them to the potluck and they were all gobbled up instantly.

I know, I wanted seconds but there were none. So yeah, it was delicious and I highly recommend it.

And this also works for potatoes, but you do have to roast them longer.
