Roasted Potatoes and Baby Carrots With Garlic
50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
6-8 servings
I just purchase a small bag of baby carrots and use the whole bag for this, or use regular peeled carrots cut into about 2-inch chunks. Try to use a good quality olive oil for this. After you have been making this for a while you will know just how much to adjust your salt and garlic, the amounts listed are about the amounts I use when I make this, but all ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste, if you are a garlic-lover use lots of garlic, after cooking the garlic flavor will mellow and will not as strong, so don't be intimated by 8 cloves! This can be made hours in advance and just rewarmed. If you find that the baby carrots are done before the potatoes just remove them to a bowl. I make this very often, it is a simple side dish with lots of flavor, I roast all of my root veggies using the same method and ingredients, rutabagas, parsnips, beets, large chunky size carrots and even sweet potatoes or yams, just peel them and chop into 2-inch pieces (larger size for yams). This is a fantastic side dish, simple and delicious!
