Roasted Carrots


for our roasted carrot recipe, we wanted to release the sweetness from the carrots, yielding a caramelized exterior and a smooth, tender interior. We liked prepared baby carrots, which require no cleaning or cutting. Tossing them with olive oil and salt (no pepper—it masks the carrots’ flavor) and roasting them on a broiler pan in a hot oven for 20 minutes got us the roasted carrots recipe we were after.
