Recipe Notes

  • You can use cut carrots or baby carrots for this recipe.
  • Instead of oregano, you could use thyme or an herb blend such as Italian or Greek seasoning blend.
  • Feel free to garnish the carrots with your favorite fresh herbs, such as parsley.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a skillet, add the olive oil and carrots over medium heat. Add the oregano, garlic powder and onion powder and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  2. Cook over medium heat until carrots are tender and golden, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh herbs, if desired, then serve.
