[Editor's Note: Roasted vegetables make for such a simple side dish, and carrots are perfect for this method of cooking. The thyme in this recipe provides an extra dimension of flavor. Carrots are available from local farmers for a good portion of the year, so take advantage of them! --Genie]
Roasted Carrots with Thyme
Often taken for granted, carrots are nutritious, versatile and always available. Eaten raw, used as lunch box filler, and for flavoring soups, stocks, and stews, humble carrots have much more to offer. With a high natural sugar content, roasting carrots brings out their wonderful sweetness and makes for an easy side dish to accompany meat and poultry.
