Quick and Easy Roasted Carrots

We’ve all been there at one time or another: the Thanksgiving disaster.

Something burned. Something didn’t turn out correctly. Something spilled all over the floor. You forgot to buy a vital ingredient.

It’s always good to have a quick and painless side dish to fall back on in an emergency, and these roasted carrots couldn’t be simpler.

I’m a big fan of carrots– they’re my favorite vegetable– but I don’t usually love them once they’re cooked and soggy. I cook these carrots just long enough to avoid the mushiness andΒ to keep a little bit of their crunch. They are roasted with thyme and sage (two flavors that taste just like Thanksgiving to me), along with some olive oil and garlic to add a buttery richness. They make a colorful addition to your holiday table– and side dishes are the best part of Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚


Quick and Easy Roasted Carrots

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. carrots, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400Β° and grease a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Slice your carrots: in half, or diagonally in 1-2 inch slices, or in coins.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the olive oil, garlic, thyme, and sage together.
  4. Toss the carrots in the olive oil mixture, then spread them evenly onto the sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the remaining mixture over the carrots, sprinkle with more thyme and sage if desired, and bake for 25-30 minutes.

    I love the idea of roasted veggies for Thanksgiving–I’ve never been a big fan of those casseroles with cream of mushroom soup and marshmallows and french fried onions and junk. I also like the idea of having an emergency recipe in the case of cooking disaster. πŸ˜‰ And these do look really simple, delicious and healthy.

    These sound so delicious! And they are so pretty – a great holiday side (or for anytime really). I was lucky this time around – I didn’t have any disasters, but it’s good to have a backup just in case. It also just sounds like a nice, simple side dish for nights I don’t have the energy for much cooking.
    Thanks for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays Courtney. I’m pinning & sharing.
    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving =)
