During the hustle and bustle of creating a big holiday meal, I tend to forget the vegetables. I know, it’s horrible…but sadly true. My focus tends to be on the “star” of the meal, aka main course, and I tend to completely forget about the beautiful vegetables that are hiding in the refrigerator, LOL. Well this time I remembered, and you will not believe how incredibly easy these Simple Roasted Carrots are to prepare. …..

Simple Roasted Carrots are a delicious side side that could not be easier to make | cookingwithcurls.com

See, I was not kidding about how easy they are to prepare!!

I wanted to highlight the natural sweetness of the carrots, and I couldn’t add any dairy…so olive oil is the perfect solution. I love thyme, it’s so versatile and adds a subtle flavor that will not overpower or take away from the carrots. I used dried thyme, but fresh would work really well too.

I was originally going to use the fancy carrots with the stems still attached, but I could not bring myself to pay $4.99 a pound…so good old regular carrots get to be the star today. 😉
