Roasted Carrots with Thyme

I know what you’re probably thinking: cooked carrots, ho-hum. But these aren’t the bland and mushy cooked carrots of your childhood. These carrots are roasted in a high-temperature oven until caramelized and tender-crisp — a cooking method that intensifies their flavor and brings out their natural sweetness. It’s an easy technique that anyone can master at home; it’s also the best way to preserve nutrients and give carrots a beautiful bronzed color.
