Garlic Butter Parmesan Roasted Carrots – tender, sweet, and delicious carrots that are drizzled in garlic, butter, and parmesan cheese. These roasted carrots make an excellent side dish to any meal – even your upcoming holiday dishes! An easy 10-minute prep while the oven does the rest!
HOW TO MAKE THESE GARLIC BUTTER PARMESAN ROASTED CARROTS
- Wash and peel the carrots. Snip off the ends, if needed.
- Melt butter over medium-heat, add garlic and cook until fragrant – approximately 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and stir in salt, pepper, and onion powder.
- You can drizzle over the carrots on a prepared baking sheet, toss them together to combine, or brush the butter mixture over. I find that it’s easier and more thorough to brush it over.
- Bake at 425F for 20-25 minutes, removing halfway to stir and add parmesan cheese.
- Remove, garnish with additional parmesan cheese (if desired) and freshly chopped parsley.→ It’s that simple!
