These Garlic Herb Roasted Carrots are my go-to when I need a quick yet flavorful side dish. With just a handful of pantry staples, I can turn ordinary carrots into a delicious treat. They’re so easy and pair perfectly with almost any meal!

  • Garlic powder: Infuses the carrots with a rich garlic flavor. If you don’t have it, fresh minced garlic works great.
  • Dried oregano, basil, parsley, thyme: These herbs elevate the dish, giving depth and aromatic essence. Fresh herbs can replace dried ones, but remember they are more potent in dried form, so adjust accordingly.
  • Salt and pepper: Enhance the natural flavors of the carrots. Adjust according to taste and preference.
  • Fresh carrots: The star of the dish. Baby carrots or colored carrots can be a playful alternative.
  • Olive oil: Helps in roasting and brings out the rich flavors of the carrots. Can substitute with other oils like avocado or grapeseed.
