Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots {Recipe}

Here is another installment in what you could bring to Thanksgiving that will impress even the pickiest of eaters!  Do you need a last-minute side to add to your table but you’re unsure what to make?  Are you tired of the same-old recipes you’ve been making year after year and are looking for a new recipe to add a kick to your menu?  I made these roasted carrots when I had a huge influx of carrots from our garden last year.  I wanted to do something special with them, and I knew that roasting them was a huge hit in my house hold.  Carrots are one vegetable that my toddler does eat. (Hallelujah!  Something healthy my toddler likes to eat!)  Roasted does make it all that much better!  I mean, she does eat carrots raw, but I like to mix it up every once in a while.roasted carrots

Notice a pattern here?  We like roasting our vegetables here.  Oven roasting vegetables brings out the natural sweetness of the vegetables, which is great for adults and children alike.

Anyway, this recipe is easy peasy, lemon squeezy, super-duper simple to make.  It’s even so easy that your child could make them, especially if you have been working on them learning kitchen skills.  I do have you using baby carrots for this recipe, but if you want to use regular carrots, use them, by all means!  Just chop them down to about 2 inch pieces.  (Another great way to have an older child learn how to use knife skills!)

Also, you can used store-bought already shredded Parmesan cheese, or grate your own.  Either is fine and tastes amazing!

Give this recipe of roasted carrots a try!  It will not disappoint you or your guests.  Of course, this recipe is also amazing to add to that weeknight dinner meal when you are pressed for time.  Let me know if you try this recipe!
