  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, optional
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional garnish: 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill or fresh thyme


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy clean up. Set aside.
  • With a sharp knife, cut off the tops of the carrots. Slice the carrots diagonally, in 1/2-inch-thick slices. Make sure they are close to the same size, so they cook evenly.
  • Place the carrots on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, if using. Toss until well coated. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Make sure the carrots are in an even layer on the baking sheet.
  • Place the pan in the oven and roast the carrots for 20 to 30 minutes, tossing halfway.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh dill or thyme. Serve warm.


Sweet option: Don’t use the garlic powder or herbs. While the carrots are roasting, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and stir in 1 tablespoon of honey. Drizzle over the carrots when they come out of the oven and toss.
