Roasted Carrots

Ingredients

  • 12 carrots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh thyme leaves
salt and pepper
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Wash carrots well, no need to peel. Cut off tops and then slice each carrot lengthwise into fourths.
3. Lay carrots out on a baking sheet {I cover mine with aluminum foil for easy cleanup} and drizzle with oil.
4. Toss to make sure they are evenly coated and then sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper.
5. Arrange carrots on the pan in a single layer and then pop them into the preheated oven.
Cook for 35-45 minutes or until carrots are soft, wrinkly, and slightly browned. Flip or just toss them half way through cooking if you want.
