  • 1 pound carrots washed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar optional
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves optional.


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Slice carrots about 1/2 inch thick and 3-4 inches long.
  • Place on lined baking sheet (see note).
  • Pour olive oil, spices, and brown sugar over the carrots.
  • Toss to coat evenly and spread carrots into a single layer.
  • Bake on the middle rack in a preheated oven for about 25 minutes, tossing halfway, or until the carrots are tender and slightly browned.
  • Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves.


Adding the brown sugar is optional, it aids in the caramelization process.
Lining a baking sheet is also optional but it speeds up clean-up time. You can use foil or parchment.
