ROASTED CARROTS

Have you ever thought of carrots  when you are roasting all of those healthy veggies? Well it was only recently that I had a large amount of carrots that I thought, humm? What can I do with these besides boil, or make a cake, or salad? 
I decided to slice them lengthwise toss them around in a little olive oil, and placed them on a cookie sheet, pop them in the oven and roast them.
Much to my surprise they were wonderful, and sweet. 

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
If you have large carrots,peel and slice them lengthwise. Smaller carrots you can peel, and roast whole. I do not suggest using those little pre- peeled baby carrots. Those little baby carrots  do not have the wonderful sweet flavor fresh whole carrots have. 
On a cookie sheet with non-stick foil, spray with olive oil spray, or drizzle a little on them tossing to cover and pop the sheet into the oven. Depending on the thickness of the carrots, 20 to 30 minutes will roast them nicely. Just watch them so they do not burn.
Enjoy!
