  • Summary

    Whether it's Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas my family always serves carrots but you don't have to wait for a holiday to make these ridiculously easy, crisp-tender carrots that are lightly caramelized and flavored with rosemary, thyme, and parsley. They're a great weeknight side dish. Since carrots have plenty of natural sugar, when you roast them at high heat they caramelize beautifully around the edges. I used tri-colored carrots but you can use traditional orange.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds carrots, trimmed, peeled, and cut on the diagonal into 1/2-inch pieces (I used tri-colored carrots but you can use all orange)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
    • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
    • 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, optional
