I have fallen in love with these Parmesan Roasted Carrots. They are a sure fire way to get the kids and grown-ups to eat their vegetables!
I post a lot of recipes on my Facebook Page. Some of them are mine and others are from blogger friends of mine who I trust and love their recipes. I don’t make all the recipes that I share on the FB page. Every once in a while though, I share another bloggers recipe and I KNOW I have to try it. Today’s recipe is one of those. By the way if you don’t follow my Facebook page, I’d love to invite you to follow along! I also have a new Facebook Group that is a great place to get more recipe and dinner ideas! I’d love for you to join that too.
As a kid I was one of those that didn’t like eating vegetables and carrots were not a favorite. In fact, the only vegetable I would eat was green beans, the kind that came out of a can! Can you believe it! But as I’ve matured and my tastes have changed and evolved I’ve really learned to love cooked carrots. I’m still not a fan of raw carrots. These roasted carrots are amazing. So amazing in fact, that I have made them multiple times already.
They are super easy to do and you are going to find yourself making them over and over again too. The carrots are peeled and then drizzled with butter and garlic. I like to put them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for easier clean up.
Roast them in a 400 degree F oven for about 15 minutes. Then pull them out, shake the pan to rotate the carrots and then sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and put them back into the oven for another 10 minutes or until they are tender and the cheese melted and browned. That browned, crunch cheese is amazing and I may have picked it off all the carrots and eaten it all myself25.
Then top them with some chopped fresh parsley and they are ready to serve.
They are seriously going to quickly become your favorite way to eat carrots and you won’t have to tell anyone to “eat their carrots,” they are going to gobble these up.
