Roast Carrots with Shallots and Thyme
Roasting is not only one of the easiest methods for preparing vegetables, it is one of the tastiest because natural sugars within vegetables, especially carrots, caramelize on the outside for incredible flavor that cannot be beat.
2 pounds small- to medium-size carrots
1 cup sliced shallots
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Place rack in center of oven.
- Peel carrots and trim green top, leaving about 1/2–inch. Cut larger carrots in half lengthwise and place in a rimmed baking sheet. Add shallots and thyme; drizzle with oil and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
- Roast for about 30 to 35 minutes or until tender and lightly browned. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
