This simple vegetable side dish is prepared quickly, then roasted in the oven for a crispy and delicious finish!
This is the 3rd vegetable I’ve roasted using garlic and Parmesan cheese. It started with Parmesan Roasted Broccoli and then last year I made my Garlic Roasted Green Beans which were a huge hit. This year the plan was to make something a little different, but my husband requested I do the same dish using carrots. I thought it sounded like a great idea.
I have to admit, I’ve seen a few similar recipes, but the ones I’ve seen used who carrots that require par-boiling the carrots before roasting. I didn’t like the idea of that because I think it removes some of the nutrients in the carrots so I decided to cut them smaller and roast the raw carrots. They came out really amazing with just the right amount of tenderness and the crispy edges were a real treat.
To make them, I just cut them up (although feel free to get the pre-cut carrots at the grocery store). Then I added some thin sliced garlic. I’ll let you in on a little secret – I use this little gadget to slice my garlic. I’m telling you, if you don’t have one, you need to get one because it is amazing! You just fill it with pealed garlic, twist and thin sliced garlic! It’s changed how I cook forever! You can get one here on Amazon.com.
Just look at how thin it slices below! It really did make preparing this dish a breeze!
