Roasted Carrots

Carrots are a great snack.  They are even sweet enough for most children to enjoy eating raw.  Kids can crunch on plain carrot sticks or snack on them with a myriad of dips.  For a change of pace, try roasting them.  It is so easy!  Like the kale chips, there are very few ingredients and kids will love to help.  These are one of my daughter's favorite snacks.  I love how simple and versatile they are.

These carrots are great hot out of the oven, but equally delicious cold out of the fridge for days!  Once cooked, they are an easy addition to a variety of foods from quesadillas to salads.  These have become one of the staples I almost always have in my fridge and I hope they will become that for you too!  

carrots, cut into strips
olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. On a baking sheet, drizzle enough olive oil over carrots to thinly coat.  Toss to ensure they are evenly coated.  Season with salt and pepper (easy on the pepper if intended for children).
  3. Bake for approximately 20 minutes stirring once, or until carrots are tender when pierced with a fork.
