  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

8-12 carrots
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
drizzle of combined honey and melted butter (1 tablespoon each), optional

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick cooking spray.

Place carrots in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. If the carrots are thick, cut them in half lengthwise. In a small bowl combine olive oil and thyme and brush over the carrots; turning to coat. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender.

This step is optional, but if you like carrots on the sweet side, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a small saucepan until lightly brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the honey.

When the carrots are tender, remove them from the oven and transfer to a serving plate. While still hot, drizzle with the honey butter, if you like, and sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley.
