Description

Ranch seasoned, perfectly roasted nutritious carrots that kids and adults alike will LOVE! Only 3 ingredients and 25 minutes to make! A perfect healthy side dish that can be paired with any meal. Vegetarian and Gluten-Free!!!!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1.5 lbs whole carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/41/2 inch thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 34 tablespoons store-bought ranch seasoning

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Place the sliced carrots into a mixing bowl and drizzle them with the 2 tablespoons of olive oil and lightly toss to coat all of the carrots in the oil.
  3. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the ranch seasoning onto the carrots and toss to coat.
  4. Lay the seasoned carrots in a single layer onto the baking sheet. You may need to do this in batches or use more than one baking sheet if they do not all fit on one.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees F for 18-20 minutes, until the carrots are starting to turn golden brown with slightly crispy edges.
  6. Remove the carrots from the oven and sprinkle on the remaining 1 tablespoon of ranch seasoning and a pinch of black pepper. Toss lightly.
  7. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

  1. If you feel ambitious and would like to make your own ranch seasoning mix, here is a great recipe!
  2. You can use sliced whole carrots or baby carrots in this recipe.
  3. Avocado oil in place of olive oil works great as well!
  4. Slice the carrots into 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices to ensure the edges get nice and crispy and the carrots become perfectly tender when roasted.
  5. Use medium-size carrots that are not too large since they will be sweeter in flavor.
  6. When selecting carrots, always opt for carrots that are firm rather than limp, soft, or rubbery. Good quality, mature carrots should be rather smooth with few blemishes.
  7. Rainbow carrots also work great in this recipe!
  8. If you want the carrots to have crispier edges, then turn the oven temperature up to 425 degrees F for the last few minutes of cooking time.
  9. These carrots store great in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven on a sheet pan at 350 degrees F for 4-5 minutes.
