  • Active Time 10m

Serves 4

Carrots are also wonderful roasted with their cousin the parsnip, cut into pieces the same size as the carrot.


  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and left whole if small
  • or cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs, such as chives,
  • flat-leaf parsley, thyme or a mix


Heat the oven to 450 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss the carrots with the oil, salt and herbs. Spread the carrots in a baking pan just large enough to hold them

in one layer. Roast, shaking the pan once or twice, until the carrots are fork-tender, about half an hour.
