This is a quick and easy way to change up your oven roasted carrots - and you can go in any direction you want; use any vinaigrette or oil based dressing to drizzle over and complement whatever dish you're serving these alongside! I love, love roasted carrots and am always happy to find new ways to slightly change things up!
For this version I used a Greek vinaigrette I had in the refrigerator that I've been a little bit obsessed with lately. It's one of my very favorite flavor profiles for salads. After tossing these carrots in it, I wanted to add some crumbled feta as well.
Roasted Carrots with Vinaigrette
1 lb carrots, peeled and diced into thin (uniform) pieces
1 - 2 TBS olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 - 2 TBS vinaigrette / dressing
- Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Toss the carrot pieces with 1-2 TBS of olive oil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and toss to evenly coat.
- Roast the carrots in the pre-heated oven 15 minutes or until tender.
- When carrots are roasted, drizzle with your preferred vinaigrette and serve. (I used a Greek vinaigrette!)
