No boring side dishes around here! These Best Garlic Roasted Carrots are just 3 ingredients and all flavor. It’s all about roasting these beauties at a high temperature so the carrots caramelize as the cook. So if you’ve ever thought carrots were on the boring side, this recipe is for you. Also be sure to check out my other favorite varations below from Maple Herb to Honey Dijon.



2 pound carrots, cut into 1/2” slices, see notes

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Optional: 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley for garnish


Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

On a large cookie sheet, toss the carrots together with the olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and pepper to combine.

Spread the carrots out evenly and roast in the oven until tender and beginning to brown, 30-40 minutes.

Check halfway through the cooking time and stir the carrots that are browning.

Sprinkle with the optional parsley, and serve.


You can peel the carrots or not. They do tend to be slightly brighter in color when peeled.
