Are you trying to add more vegetables to your meals? Putting a pan of veggies in the oven to roast is one of my favorite ways to increase the amount of healthy vegetables that we eat. Not only is it easy, but we love the flavor of roasted veggies!

These Roasted Carrots are perfect for any occasion. They’re easy enough for any day of the week. They would also be a delicious addition to your Easter dinner. I like to use rainbow carrots because the colors are so pretty, especially with a sprinkle of fresh parsley on top.

These Roasted Carrots have a secret ingredient that makes them extra delicious… paprika! Just a little bit of paprika mixed in with salt, pepper and olive oil and then drizzled over the carrots before roasting makes all the difference!

Have you tried my roasted broccoli recipe? It’s another favorite that I make almost weekly. My whole family enjoys it so much more when it’s roasted to crisp-tender perfection. Yum!

Another vegetable that we roast all the time is butternut squash. Here’s my favorite easy roasted butternut squash recipe.

Make these Roasted Carrots even easier:

  • Don’t peel your carrots. Give them a good scrub with a vegetable brush, pat them dry, and slice.
  • Wash and cut your carrots ahead of time. Then, after a long day, you can get them into the oven even faster.
  • Double the recipe. Save the extras for lunch or dinner the next night, or turn them into roasted carrot and garlic hummus!
