Orange’d Roasted Carrots

11 Jun

My CSA box has graced me with so many carrots this season that I’ve had to look for new ways to make them … they’re super cute, because they’re mini carrots.  But I, my mom and the yoga center have been blessed with so many carrots this year.   And they keep coming each week.

CSA - Zanahorias

Roasting is a great and easy way to enjoy carrots.  Just drizzle them with seasonings and leave them in a toaster oven for about 30 minutes, enough time for me to do my daily meditation. 

This is how I made them the last time…

 Orange Roasted Carrots



3-4 mini carrots, washed and peeled
The juice of one orange
About ½ tbs of Olive oil
A sprig of fresh thyme
Kosher salt and Freshly cracked pepper


  1. I wash well and peel the carrots… if you don’t peel them, they show this darker skin on top after you cook them that is not very appealing to me.
  2. Place carrots in a roasting dish, squeeze the orange juice over them, add the olive oil, and season with salt, pepper and thyme.  Make sure the carrots are well coated with everything.
  3. Place in a 400F oven for about 30 mins.  The juice will reduce quite a bit…


Enjoy as a side dish…
