Rosemary Roasted Carrots


Ever buy that pack of fresh herbs in the grocery store and have a couple sprigs leftover that you don’t know what to do with? Happens to me all the time.

Here’s why you’ll love these rosemary roasted carrots.

I really hate throwing food out. It’s a personal mission of mine to find a way to use everything I buy, and those fresh herb packets are notorious.

How do you usually prepare a carrot side dish? (Or… do you?)

I spent five years as a dedicated Paleo follower and got in the habit of finding tasty, non-salad ways of eating veggies. Roasting became my go-to. But even with a coating of ghee and a proper seasoning blend, it did feel a bit monotonous at times.

The bright rosemary and lemon really livens up carrots. I hope you give it a try!

I recommend using a Silpat liner on a sheet pan. It’s nice not to have to douse the carrots in oil or ghee to keep them from sticking…

Share how they worked for you.
