How to make garlic roasted carrots

Peel and cut 1 pound of carrots into diagonal 1-2″ pieces. 

I prefer to use whole carrots for this recipe, not baby carrots. 

Whole carrots have more flavor than baby carrots do, and work beautifully for this recipe. 

Place the carrots in a small baking dish, and prepare your garlic butter.

I do not recommend using a baking sheet for this recipe.

The edges of a baking dish help keep the butter near to the carrots instead of going off to the sides. 

With a baking sheet, you risk the butter going off the sides of the sheet and into the oven, instead of cooking the carrots.

Mince up your fresh garlic, and add it to a small bowl along with the butter. 

Microwave until melted, stir in the salt and pepper, then pour the garlic butter over the carrot pieces, mixing until coated. 

The carrots should be totally coated in the garlic butter sauce. 

Roast the carrots for 15 minutes at 425 degrees, then remove from the oven to stir.

Once stirred, roast an additional 15 minutes, until tender but not mushy. 

Once you have finished cooking the carrots, remove from the oven and sprinkle the tops with fresh parsley and you are ready to serve!

The carrots are tender and buttery and so full of flavor thanks to loads of fresh garlic.

This recipe calls for using 8 cloves of minced garlic.

If you are afraid of that much, you can use less.

But I promise the garlic flavor isn’t overwhelming, just insanely good.

Fresh garlic is a favorite in our house.

It really takes the flavor level up on dishes, and we use it often!

Try these for an easy side dish to go with your dinner tonight!

Mmm... I'm a sucker for this fab side dish recipe. I could indeed enjoy it for all three meals. The rest of my family don’t particularly care for roasted carrots, but I can’t get enough! Thank you so much for sharing! Looking forward to your new awesome ideas. I’m a real fan of what you do. You're an inspiration for us all. Keep it up!

Best wishes, Ann

Took much longer than 15 mins to cook although the recipe didn't specify whether to cover of not so I'd had it covered the first 15 mins. I used less garlic just due to preference of my sister...probably about 6 which I think was plenty.

The recipe actually says to cook 15 minutes, flip, then cook an additional 15 minutes for a total of 30 minutes :) And no, there is no need to cover it.
