This really showcases carrots -- if you have a garden, try growing the nantes varietal, which has a nice sweetness and a perfectly cylindrical shape so your carrot pieces roast evenly.

Ingredients

How to Make Thyme-Scented Carrots

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel and, if desired, cut carrots into 4" long wedges. (I cut the top part of the carrot into 6-8 pieces, and the skinnier bottom into 4 pieces.)
  3. Put carrots and thyme sprigs into large glass baking dish or roasting pan. Toss with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Add 2-3 tablespoons of water, cover with aluminum foil and bake until tender, about 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the foil and roast for another 10-15 minutes. You want the water to disappear and carrots to be slightly caramelized.
