Easy step-by-step instructions on how to cook carrots in the oven. This 30 minute recipe makes delicious crispy roasted carrots!
If you haven’t noticed I love roasted vegetables. My family has roasted veggies at least twice a week, always with a mixture of whatever is in season in the garden or on sale at the grocery store.
Roasted carrots are one of my favorites, or as my daughter calls them, “candy carrots” because they taste so sweet after baking in the oven. In just 30 minutes you’ll have delicious carrots ready to be eaten. Want to make it a full meal? You can easily add oven baked sausage, and roasted Brussels sprouts along with them! Or for the ultimate easy meal, just serve with some rice!
How long do carrots take in the oven?
Roasted Carrots take 30 minutes in the oven. It’s important you flip them halfway through cooking to make sure they don’t stick to the pan or burn. By flipping them you’re going to assure they’re crispy on both sides, making perfect roasted vegetables.
What temperature to roast carrots at?
Roasted carrots cook best at 425 degrees F. This makes them soft and crispy at the same time, without burning them.
Directions on How to Cook Carrots in the Oven
Peel and slice your carrots into about 1/2 inch pieces. I like to keep them in circle shapes, but you could also do long slices if you want.
Place the carrots directly on a baking sheet. You can use parchment paper for easy cleanup but I find that vegetables roast best directly on the pan.
Add olive oil on top (I always buy this in bulk), stir and then sprinkle salt and pepper for taste.
Bake for 30 minutes, making sure you stir them halfway to prevent them from sticking. Serve, eat, enjoy! (Don’t you love how easy that was?)
