Roasted Carrots with Thyme and Parsley

Easy, versatile side dish.



  • Mise en place (always!). Preheat oven to 400°. Drizzle half of olive oil over bottom of baking sheet, spread around with paper towel, greasing bottom of pan. 
  • Peel carrots and chop tops off. Place on prepared baking sheet. 
  • Drizzle remaining olive oil over carrots (go light with olive oil, you probably won't use entire remaining tablespoon).
  • Sprinkle parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper over carrots. Roll carrots back and forth, coating all sides with spices. (A lot of spices will remain on bottom of pan; that's fine). 
  • Roast in pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes, until carrots are fork-tender. 


***Make sure you use olive oil designed for cooking and baking. Regular extra-virgin has a low smoke point; don't use that kind.
