Parmesan Roasted Carrots
This is a great go-to roasted carrot recipe that uses pretty standard ingredients you probably have on hand! The panko breading adds a lovely little extra texture to these carrots and they are a versatile side dish with a mild flavor profile so they will go with just about anything. I served these alongside some chicken thighs a couple nights ago. Well, mostly I taste tested them (repeatedly) off the baking sheet and then served dinner.
You can up the parmesan if you like a stronger flavor profile, and up the breading if you want more of that texture, but this is a great base to play with and a very delicious way to enjoy carrots! Roasting brings out such lovely, sweet flavor in carrots!
