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.

How To Make Roasted Carrots with Thyme
Directly on a foil-lined baking sheet, toss together the carrots, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Roast, stirring once mid-way through, until nicely caramelized and tender, 20 to 25 minutes (cooking time will depend on thickness of carrots).
Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with more fresh thyme, if desired.
