Roasting fresh carrots is a piece of cake, my friend!
Here’s a simple and delicious way to do it:
1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. While it’s heating up, peel your carrots and cut them into your preferred size. You can slice them diagonally to get longer pieces or cut them into smaller chunks if you prefer.
3. Toss the carrots in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. You could also add some herbs like rosemary or thyme. It’s your show, so you can flavor them however you like!
4. Spread the carrots out in a single layer on a baking sheet. If they’re too close together, they’ll steam instead of roast, so give them some space.
5. Roast the carrots in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until they’re tender and lightly caramelized.
You can give them a stir halfway through to ensure they roast evenly.
And voila! You’ve got yourself some delicious, roasted carrots.
Remember, we’re looking for that beautiful caramelization. It’s where all the sweet, roasted flavor comes from. So, go ahead, and get roasting! Trust me, your taste buds will thank you.
