Roasted Carrots with Garlic

Cold days and freezing nights just beg for you to use the oven to warm up the kitchen (and you!).  I saw this recipe in Whole Living Magazine, and I realized that I have never roasted carrots before so I promptly went to the kitchen and made them for dinner.  Roasting carrots really brings out their sweetness!

Roasted Carrots with Garlic

Serves 4


1 pound medium carrots, peeled and halved lengthwise
4-5 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Arrange carrots and garlic on baking sheet; drizzle carrots with oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Roast 30-35 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  4. Drizzle lemon juice on carrots before serving; spread garlic onto the carrots
Roasting can be done to any vegetable or fruit and tends to bring out a sweetness that usually isn't tasted (vegetables) or intensifies and deepens the sweetness (fruit).  Do you regularly roast a particular fruit or vegetable?
