Ingredients

  • 12 ounces baby carrots
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill minced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Toss carrots with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Create a single layer on a sheet pan. Bake 30 minutes or until tender and brown.
  • Toss with dill and serve.

Notes

  • Make your carrots a bit sweeter by tossing in a teaspoon of brown sugar or a teaspoon of maple syrup.
  • Keep it spicy and add ¼ teaspoon chilli powder, ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon and a dash of cayenne pepper.
BRAISING INSTEAD OF ROASTING IN OVEN:
  • In a large pan over medium heat, saute the carrots, olive oil and dill.
  • Raise the heat to high and add one fourth cup of water, vegetable stock or chicken stock and cover.
  • Bring to a boil. 
  • Next, reduce heat back to medium, stirring occasionally for five minutes. 
  • Uncover carrots and cook a few more minutes until carrots are tender, but not mushy, and most of the liquid has evaporated.
