Thyme & Butter Roasted Carrots

I recently received the newest copy of Cooking Light magazine and in it, they had a recipe for Roasted Carrots. Their recipe included butter and olive oil but I wanted to add some fresh herbs to mine, hence the thyme. I also omitted the olive oil as I thought the butter would be enough and it was. These carrots were extremely tasty and I've said it before, there's nothing like roasting your vegetables! The only key is to make sure you don't peel the carrots while the kids are nearby. I had to pry them away from their little hands as they were imitating Bugs Bunny running around the house with them yelling "What's up Doc?!" Yup, never dull around here. :)

Thyme & Butter Roasted Carrots
Adapted from Cooking Light
2 lb. Carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally into 1/4"
1 tbsp. Fresh Thyme
2 tbsp. Butter, melted
1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. Fresh Ground Pepper

Steam carrots over a double boiler until they start to soften; approximately 10 minutes. Next, add them to a bowl and add in the thyme, butter, salt and pepper. Coat well then place on a baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Serves 6. 




  1. You are right, roasted vegetables are the best: Love these.

  2. A great way to add flavor to carrots. Thanks for sharing =)

  3. I love me some fresh cooked carrots!

  4. I have recently discovered roasting vegetables and I no longer have to worry about my teen eating his veggies! I think this is going to be what's for dinner tonight! Thanks for the recipe.

    1. That's how I got my kids to eat their veggies as well. They really take on a wonderful flavor when roasting. Thanks for stopping by Carolyn and I hope you like them.

    2. Ok, didn't try them last night, but did make them tonight, and they were heavenly! I love thyme and it goes very nicely with carrots. Thanks again, for another great recipe!
