“Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking”
H. Jackson Brown
When I was little I hated carrots. My mom would pile them on my plate and I would just stare at them. I was never one of those kids that snuck them under the table to our dog, instead I was hard headed. I made up my mind and decided that carrots were not for me.
Now that I am older and wiser, roasted carrots are one of my favorite veggies. I am still hard-headed and credit the carrots for building my character!
1 lb bag of carrots, washed and peeled
1 tbsp olive oil
coarse kosher salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Wash and peel carrots. Then slice on a diagonal into 1/2″ to 3/4″ slices.
Toss carrots in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and then place carrots on a baking sheet.
Roast for 20-30 minutes according to if you prefer them lightly roasted or slightly burnt. Makes 4 servings.
Roasted carrots are delicious. They develop a sweet flavor similar to sweet potatoes.
