Ingredients

  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste (use garlic salt, seasoned salt, or Cajun seasoning if you prefer)
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place a rack one slot below the top of the oven (see notes for baking tips).
  • Cover a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Spread the baby carrots in a single layer on the foil-covered baking sheet.
  • Drizzle the carrots with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • With your hands, mix the carrots, salt, and pepper until the carrots are well coated with olive oil and seasonings.
  • Bake the carrots at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes. Toss the carrots by shaking the baking sheet, or using a non-metal spatula.
  • Return the carrots to the oven for 10-15 minutes until tender and browned. Check the bottoms of the carrots. The side of the
    carrots touching the pan mayl brown faster.
  • Remove the carrots from the oven and place in a serving dish (optional). Sprinkle with parsley. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper as desired.

Notes

Bake the carrots toward the top of the oven, for more even browning. If your oven has a convection setting, use it for this recipe. If you use a convection oven, you may need to reduce the baking time by 2-3 minutes.
