Garlic and Herb Roasted Carrots – these carrots are roasted to perfection with lots of garlic and herbs such as thyme, basil and oregano, creating the perfect side dish.
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.
Maybe veggies don’t get enough love in your household, or maybe you’re a bit stuck on making them the same old ways. I know as a kid my mom used to boil the life out of our veggies and serve them up steaming and completely void of flavor! I swore to never dishonour them the same way in my own.
This ingredient list looks a little long but believe me they have all been combined to best showcase our beautiful little farmers market finds! Besides they’re all herbs! If you’re the type who has a nice big green thumb and needs a way to cook up those carrots your pulled form the garden – then these are going to be your new best friend!
Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.
