Ingredients

  • 1 pound carrots, I used the rainbow blend
  • 1 ½ Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp coarse sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 3 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese, optional
  • 2 Tbsp fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Cut the peeled carrots into even size sticks, about 4 inches long and ½ inch thick.
  4. Place carrots into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.
  6. Stir carrots to evenly coat with olive oil and salt/pepper.
  7. Spread the carrots out on your lined baking pan. Make sure they aren’t overlapping with each other.
  8. Put in oven and cook for about 25-35 mins, flipping the carrots halfway through to make sure they cook evenly.
  9. Keep an eye on the carrots, as every oven cooks differently. Cook until carrots are tender and browned on the edges.
  10. In a large bowl, mix together the cheese, garlic, and parsley. Add the warm carrots and stir to coat.
  11. Add more sea salt depending on taste.
