One day I was being super lazy; I wanted to cook my entire meal in the oven…I already had the rice prepped and ready to go, tofu was marinating and waiting to get trayed and popped into the oven. What about some carrots to go with?
I just wanted to be sure on temps and times so I googled Roasted Carrots and came up with Ina Garten’s Roasted Carrots.
They were fabulous! I snuck in some Snap Peas that I had hanging around in the fridge which crisped up like crazy…it was like eating chips!
12 Carrots, scrubbed; if thick, cut in half, lengthwise.
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 1/4 teaspoons Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste
2 Tablespoon Fresh Dill or Parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 400F.
Cover baking tray with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy clean up.
Slice carrots diagonally in 1 1/2 inch thick slices – they will shrink while roasting so be generous.
Toss them in a bowl, to coat, with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
Turn out, in a single layer, onto prepared baking tray.
Roast in oven for 20 minutes, until lightly browned and tender.
Sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs, if using.
Serves 4 – 6
