A couple of small tips make all the difference in making the BEST roasted carrots! Roasted at a high temperature, these carrots are perfectly tender with beautiful caramelized edges. So many ways to flavor roasted carrots, whether you like them sweet or savory.
Place the sliced carrots in a large mixing bowl, and add a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (about 2 tbsp or so.) Season with kosher salt and black pepper. Toss to combine.
Transfer the carrots to a baking pan, making sure to spread them well in one single layer.
Roast in the heated oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelized. Check part-way through and turn carrots over to get even color on both sides.)
Remove from oven. Transfer the roasted carrots to a serving bowl. Here, you can add flavor to your liking. To follow the recipe, season with turmeric and harissa spice blend. If you like, add a little minced garlic and a splash of lime juice. Toss to combine. Garnish with fresh parsley.
Falvor Variations: Once carrots are roasted, you can play with flavors as you like. I like savory warm flavors with roasted carrots, that's why I used turmeric and harissa. I have also used a combination of cumin and coriander with a little oregano. And if you're in the mood for something on the sweet side, add a dash of cinnamon with nutmeg and a drizzle of warm honey to your roasted carrots.
