Crusted Garlic Carrots

We love carrots on the farm. We love growing them, cooking them and eating them. They are a favorite among all the animals as well, including the dogs.

One thing I love about carrots is that they are a super simple side dish. Especially on a night that I don’t feel like standing over the saute pan. But, I am always on the hunt for new and delicious ways to prepare this yummy side.

This recipe is one of my favorites. It pairs best with a heavy meat and I recommend making this dish in cast iron. The heat from the pan put the best crisp on the carrots. It is hard to go wrong.

Crusted Garlic Carrots

  • Cast Iron Pan (optional)
  • 1 lb carrots (Peeled or unpeeled. I prefer to leave mine unpeeled.)
  • 1 tbsp Avocado or Grapeseed Oil (you can use olive oil, however I prefer not to because of the tempurature of this dish. )
  • 3 whole Garlic Cloves – minced or finely chopped.
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

  2. Mix carrots, oil and garlic. Make sure to coat the carrots well with the mixture.

  3. Roast carrots in preheated oven until crisp-tender, about 30-45 minutes. Make sure to stir the carrots every 10 minutes to avoid burning.

  4. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over carrots and continue roasting until cheese is lightly browned, 5 minutes.

  5. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese to serve, according to your taste.
