Roasted Carrots

My kids beg me for these carrots!
I decided to post an easy recipe today. Again, it is delicious. You may already do this with your carrots. My family love, love carrots. Usually I can only get the kids to eat them when they are raw (which is great, not complaining). I love cooked carrots, but I don't like making a glaze or adding a cheesy sauce. I've found if you roast the carrots the natural sugars come out and gives it its own sweet taste. If you don't believe me, try this recipe to see!

Roasted Carrots
Preheat oven to 475 F
Peel - as many carrots as you think you'll eat. I think 2 carrots per adult and 1 per child. Cut into 1/4 inch slices. Place carrots on a jelly roll pan - single layer please. Drizzle a light coating of olive oil over the top. Sprinkle with about 1/2 tsp of sea salt. Add freshly minced garlic (optional). I just love garlic so I think I add it to most things I cook.

Bake for about 20 minutes. Flip carrots over and bake about 15 minutes longer - or until browned. I promise you, you will love these caramelized carrots. My kids think they are delicious and they are semi-picky kids.
