Well, we’re still on our road trip, currently in Montreal right now and all I have to say is what a city! It’s so gorgeous and the buildings are incredible. We got a chance to visit Notre-Dame Basilica today and it’s simply breathtaking. Follow me on instagram for pictures and videos from my trip.
Now finally, let’s talk about these garlic and herb roasted carrots. I found these fresh carrots at my local grocery store and I buy them whenever I see them, but if you can’t find these, just use regular carrots, or baby carrots work just as well too. This is an incredibly easy side dish to make and it goes perfectly with any meat you make, like a roast chicken, or pork roast. It’s also perfect for a holiday dinner and even just as a healthy snack. They’re wonderfully seasoned with garlic and lots of herbs such as thyme, oregano and basil, so if you love your herbs then these carrots are for you!

- 1 lb fresh carrots washed
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- In a small bowl mix the garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper together. Sprinkle the garlic herb mixture over the carrots along with the 2 tbsp of olive oil. Toss everything together, making sure each carrot is seasoned with the garlic and herb mixture.

If you use fresh herbs, cook the carrots for 20 minutes and mix them with the herbs for the last 10 minutes of cooking to avoid having the herbs burn.
