Simply Roasted Carrots

All my son ever wants with his meal vegetable wise is sweetcorn , sweetcorn and yet more sweetcorn and I thought a change was order and plus there was no sweetcorn in the freezer. I think as a family we must purchase the worlds quota on sweetcorn I see yellow in my dreams. So I thought the humble carrot needed to be thrust into the limelight yes "come on down " I really do adopt the game show mentality when I am thinking of what to do with my fruit and vegetables asides sticking googly eyes on them.


Carrots ( well there's a surprise) cut into batons.

A glug of olive oil 


Turn on the oven - no brainer 

And preheat to 180 c

Now some chefs will be telling you to coat the carrots with honey etc but you really don't have to. Also you can speed up the roasting process by either slightly cooking by whacking the carrot batons in the microwave for about  7 minutes or by a quick boil on the hob ( same timings )


Place in a oven proof dish

Glug some olive oil over it all and roast for about 20 minutes.


  1. We all love carrots and I should do something different, I tend to just boil them!

  2. The wife always roasts the carrots and then dribbles them with honey!

  3. We love carrots, even the dog believe it or not. He sits and begs for raw carrots as we peel them!

  4. We love honey roasted carrots! This has made me hungry now!

  5. We love roasted veg - we have it at least once a week ;-)

  6. sometimes the simplest things are the best aren't they! x

  7. I made these today! They were lovely :) Thank you for posting.
