How to Make Roasted Carrots With Garlic & Parmesan (Who Said Carrots Are Boring?)

Not much thought is usually given to cooking carrots. Throw some butter, salt and pepper on them and you're good to go.  It's time to rethink carrots. These roasted carrots elevate the vegetable to a whole new dinner-party-worthy level!

You'll need:

  • 5 - 10 whole carrots, peeled and ends cut off 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (or more, to taste)
  • chopped fresh parsley

Here's how you make them:

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook about 1 minute, stirring, until fragrant.
  2. Line a cookie sheet or baking dish with parchment paper or foil. Lay the carrots on the foil.
  3. Pour the garlic butter over the carrots. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 15-25 minutes, or until almost tender, turning carrots one time. (Cooking time depends on how big your carrots are.) 
  5. Top with the cheese and cook another 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
