    prepping carrots for roasting
  • Pour the olive oil over the carrots and sprinkle the garlic, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper on them. Gently mix to coat the carrots.
  • Line the carrots on the prepared baking sheet, making sure there is enough space between them. *See note in “tips” section about green tops of carrots.*

  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes for thinner carrots or 35-40 minutes for thicker carrots or until the carrots are tender when pierced with a fork. Turn the carrots once, half way through baking, so they are baked evenly on both sides.
  • Serve the carrots warm with fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish.

  • If you want to keep the green tops on the carrots, lightly cover them in aluminum foil so they don't burn.
  • If no rainbow carrots are available, you can certainly use regular orange carrots! They’ll be just as delicious!
