Fraiche Nutrition: Parmesan Roasted Carrots
If you’re as tired of boiled carrots at the holiday dinner table as we are, these will be a welcome change of pace! Fresh carrots get dressed up with a healthy drizzle of olive oil, earthy (and beautiful) thyme sprigs, and a yummy crispy layer of melted parmesan cheese. Ready in minutes, you can prepare the carrots (unbaked) in advance so that they are ready to pop into the oven just in time for dinner!
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Cut the larger carrots in half, leaving any smaller ones whole. Spread them evenly on a large cookie sheet and drizzle them with the olive oil. Sprinkle with the sea salt and scatter the thyme sprigs evenly on top. Loosely mix them with your hands to coat the carrots, making sure they aren’t crowded in the pan, and roast for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, until they start to caramelize and turn golden brown at the edges.
- Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over the top. Return to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes, until the parmesan starts to turn golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
