  • 2 pounds carrots, washed, peeled, and cut into approximately ½-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons green onions (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped (optional)

  • For Added Spice
  • 1 teaspoons chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Sweeten Things Up
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  1. Preheat oven and prepare baking sheet

    Preheat your oven to 400º and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Combine carrots, oil, and seasoning

    Place the carrots in a large mixing bowl and add the olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste.

  3. (Optional) For added spice...

    If you want your carrots on the spicier side, now is the time to add your chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon.

  4. Toss and spread on baking sheet

    Toss until the carrots are coated and then spread them out on the baking sheet.

  5. Roast carrots

    Arrange them in a single layer and roast until they’re caramelized on the edges, about 25–30 minutes. Be sure to carefully move the carrot slices around halfway through the roast time.

  6. (Optional) For added sweetness...

    If you're making the sweet version, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat while carrots are roasting. Once it's melted, whisk in honey and keep it warm over low heat. Once the carrots are cooked, place them back in a mixing bowl and drizzle the honey butter over them and toss to coat once again.

  7. Serve

    Place in a serving bowl and toss with any combination of the chopped fresh chives, green onions, and fresh rosemary as well as parsley, cilantro, or dill. Enjoy immediately!
