Ingredients

  • 10-12 carrots 1 1/2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.
  • Slice the carrots diagonally in 2-inch-thick slices. Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a sheet pan, spreading them out in a single layer.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minute, until they’re browned and fork tender. Roasting time may vary depending on the size of the carrots.
  • Sprinkle chopped parsley on top, if desired and serve warm.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 5-6 days in the fridge.
You can freeze the roasted carrots, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a lot leftover and no one to eat them. If you do freeze them, I recommend you repurpose them by blending in a soup!
Make Ahead Tips: Save some time by peeling and slicing the carrots in advance. To keep them fresh in the fridge, store them in a bowl of water. Then drain and pat dry before preparing to cook.
