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 smaller ones whole. Place them on a large baking tray. Add olive oil, salt, and thyme . Toss using your hands to evenly coat the carrots. Spread out the carrots, making sure they aren’t crowded, and roast for approximately 20-25 minutes, until they start to caramelize and turn golden brown at the edges.
- Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly over the top. Return to the oven for 5- 10 minutes, until the cheese starts to turn golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
