Raise your hand if you like carrots….
Those of you that do, prepare to be wowed!
Those of you that don’t, please keep reading. If you give me a chance, you might just learn to like them. My family did.
My family was so-so about carrots. They liked them raw, but cooked….well, that was another story. It was nearly impossible to get them to eat a cooked carrot.
My secret weapon were these Garlic Roasted Carrots. They are bursting with flavor and natural sweetness.
And, if you happen to get a piece of the crispy caramelized garlic…pure deliciousness!
You can easily use whole carrots cut into matchsticks. This slicer makes it super easy. Or you can use baby carrots that require zero prep time. Both work perfectly in this recipe.
The recipe is super simple – just butter, minced garlic and a little seasoning tossed together and roasted to golden perfection.
The best part is, they’re ready in under 30 minutes. Or, if you’re like my husband, you can let them roast a little longer and they get all crispy and toasted around the edges. Don’t judge. That’s the way he likes ’em.
It really is the perfect balance of flavor and texture. And, my family cannot get enough of these!
