I made this easy and tasty recipe for Rosh Hashanah today. Everyone loved the carrots-even the kids! I didn't use exact measurements but I cut-up eight large carrots, mixed with a little butter and olive oil, sprinkled some salt and pepper, and spread out on two cooking spray covered foil-lined baking sheets. Baked for about 20-25 minutes and the carrots were super delicious!

So easy and so good! Roasted vegetables are great. Next time I will roast a little longer so all pieces will be soft and at their yummiest.

Very tasty! A bit salty for me, so I will cut back the salt next time! Very easy too!

This was so simple and absolutely wonderful. Used baby carrots, and cut just a few that were larger.

Very good but I would say to slice the carrots a bit thinner, maybe into almost matchstick size. The smaller and more browned they are, the better.

This is my go-to carrot recipe. They always come out PERFECT! A tablespoon of butter? Cooking Light, how risqué of you!
