Oven Roasted Carrots

With Easter fast approaching (I can’t believe it’s already almost time for Easter and Spring!) I had to share this simple and delicious recipe for Oven Roasted Carrots. It’s an Easter Dinner tradition around our house to always serve Deviled Eggs and a carrot dish of some kind every year. Something about eggs and carrots just screams Happy Easter to me! haha! So this year, we will be making these Oven Roasted Carrots for our Easter dinner.

One thing I love so much about these Oven Roasted Carrots is the stupid easy recipe. I mean, it can’t get any more simple than only three ingredients right?! There is no shame in my easy recipe game! haha!

I started out with a large sheet pan lined with parchment paper. This creates a non-stick barrier between the food and the pan and also makes for much easier clean up. No soaking or scrubbing the pan clean!

After lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper, tear into a large bag of baby carrots and place them on the baking sheet. You should also go ahead and start preheating your oven at 400F.

Drizzle the carrots very lightly and evenly with olive oil. This will help the carrots to roast nicely.

Once the carrots have been drizzled with olive oil, toss them lightly with your hands to ensure that they are evenly coated with the olive oil.

Open one packet of dry Ranch seasoning and sprinkle it evenly over the baby carrots.

Sprinkle away! This Ranch mix makes these Oven Roasted Carrots taste SO GOOD!

Place the Ranch seasoned carrots into the oven that has been preheating at 400F and bake for fifteen minutes.

Once the first fifteen minutes is up, toss the carrots with a spatula and roast for another fifteen minutes.

After the second fifteen minutes, remove the carrots again and toss once more. At this point you should poke the carrots with a fork and and check to see if they are fork tender. If they are not, roast for another ten minutes. Since every oven cooks differently, the cook time for these carrots could vary by ten minutes.

When your carrots are tender when poked with a fork, it’s time to place them on a pretty platter or in a bowl and serve!
