Simple side dishes rock! My five ingredient Parmesan Roasted Carrots will quickly become one of your favorites.
I’m so excited about Easter this weekend. I love everything about holiday, especially what it stands for and how it feels like the entire world is fresh and new. I know I’ve mentioned this a thousand times, but I also love how the first daffodils and red buds start coming out. It’s like the entire world is getting a chance to start fresh.
It’s also so exciting when the first spring vegetables start coming in to the stores and farmer’s markets. Carrots just scream Easter and spring to me.
Especially my Parmesan Garlic Carrots!
I pick up one of those bags of baby carrots almost every time I’m at the grocery store. They are so easy to have around to snack on or use as a quick side dish.
For a fresh take on baby carrots I simply roast them in olive oil, parmesan, garlic and a touch of thyme.
The parmesan adds a rich nuttiness that is simply perfection.
Serve these babies up during the week, or put them in a pretty dish for Easter this weekend.
It will be our little secret that my Parmesan Roasted Carrots are only six ingredients!
- 1 16 ounce bag baby carrots
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- cooking spray
- Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and toss well.
- Pour onto baking sheet.
- Roast for 25-30 minutes, tossing half way.
Serves four smaller side dishes or two large ones.
