  • Rimmed baking sheet


  • 2 pounds carrots
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) salted butter melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F. Peel and trim the tops from your carrots and slice them into 2-inch chunks. For larger carrots, slice the thick upper part in half lengthwise before cutting into pieces.
  • Toss carrots with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, tossing the carrots once halfway through, until carrots are caramelized around the edges and fork tender.
  • Add additional salt and pepper if needed, serve and enjoy!


Roasting carrots at the same time as your main dish: As long as your dish is cooking at 450°F or lower, you can cook your carrots at the same time as your main dish, however the carrots may not get as browned and will probably need a longer roasting time than when cooked alone.
Roast the carrots on a rack below the main dish and extend the baking time as needed for the carrots to become tender.
