RECIPE: Herb Roasted Carrots


I posted my Herb Roasted Carrots on Instagram over the weekend and received so many messages asking me how to make them that I decided to write a how-to for you guys so that you can make them for Thanksgiving (or any other time you fancy)! 

They're the PERFECT Thanksgiving side to make for Turkey Day ~ healthy, tasty, and so easy to make! You can't eff 'um up.

Here's what you do. 

RECIPE: Herb Roasted Carrots 
Prep Time: 20-30 minutes

Ingredients:
1 Bag of Trader Joe's Les Petite Carrots of Many Colors (these guys) *yes, you can use other carrots
2 Tbsp Olive Oil -OR- 1 Packet of Bellucci Organic On-The-Go EVOO packets
A handful of fresh Thyme sprigs

Supplies
Baking Pan
Aluminum Foil/Wax Baking Paper
Knife
Cutting Board
Measuring Spoons

Directions:
1) Preheat the oven to 400° degrees. 
2) Line your baking pan with aluminum foil or wax paper (aka parchment paper) or go bare, your choice! I like to use something for easy cleanup. 
3) Wash and drain carrots and place them on the pan, staggering them up. 
4) Drizzle olive oil all over the carrots, giving them a good drizzling. 
5) Add Thyme sprigs on top of and nestled in between the carrots.
6) Place on the center rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes or 30 minutes if you like 'um slighty caramalized, like me!
7) Serve!


Nitty Gritty Nutrition Facts
Carrots are a great source of vitamin A, which is good for your eyes.

Thyme is a Mediterranean herb that tastes kinda earthy with some lemony and minty tones. It has natural antiseptic and antibiotic properties that make it a great remedy for treating colds and sore throats. 

Show me your carrots... Tag 'um #HealthyliciousBliss if you post 'um so that I can see and share with the world! 🥕🌿
