Oven-Roasted Carrots Recipe

My seven children and 15 grandchildren really look forward to carrots when they're prepared this flavorful way. As a cook at our local school, I served two generations of my brood, plus relatives and friends from all over our area.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 pounds baby carrots
  • 4 small onions, quartered
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Place the carrots, onions and garlic in two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Drizzle with oil and vinegar. Sprinkle with the thyme, salt and pepper; gently toss to coat.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 450° for 20 minutes; stir. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes; stir again. Bake 10 minutes longer or until carrots are crisp-tender. Yield: 8 servings.

"This was delicious! It made for a delightful side dish for our Christmas dinner. Even my husband enjoyed it, and he made it very clear that he does NOT like cooked carrots. I didn't have whole garlic, so I substituted minced. I'm looking forward to making this with whole cloves. Yum!"

"These were absolutely delicious! The only cooked carrots I would eat were those made with a roast. They had the flavor of the meat. But after eating these I found a new way to enjoy carrots without the meat. Only thing I did different was mince the garlic ahead of time. Thanks for a great recipe."

"I love to roast carrots and this is a great way to do it! I used regular carrots, peeled them and sliced them into discs. When I went to reach for my dried thyme, I was out! So I substituted a combination of oregano and basil instead. Next time I'll try it with the thyme. As per some of the reviews, I smashed the garlic too. This is a wonderful side dish that I will definitely make again!"

"I love this recipe. I smashed the garlic slightly to release more flavours and used regular carrots cut into sticks."

"Really great flavor. I made these with a beef roast and everyone loved them. I did add a little bit of fresh basil. Looking forward to making these again."

"This was a nice change up from my standard butterscotch carrots. My typical carrots call for butter, sugar, and babysitting. None of the three were involved with this. I enjoyed this healthy and easy side dish!"
