Three Ingredient Roasted Carrots

I have always hated cooked carrots, until I made these three ingredient roasted carrots. Truth be told, there was a similar recipe within the Well Fed Weeknights Cookbook for “Everything Carrots.” My lazy (read: extremely busy as we all are) self knew this title meant I  had to try just throwing on the Trader Joe’s “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning instead of basically making my own. It worked! It worked well enough that my husband complemented them. Well enough that I enjoy a food I historically hated, and well enough that our toddler eats as many helpings as we will allow her. Yep, we actually have to cut her off! That’s how much our two year old loves these three ingredient roasted carrots. AND, they are easy. AND they are cheap to make!

A part of me hates calling these a “recipe” but the formatting makes more sense for anyone who wants to print. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, I’m sorry for torturing you! The nearest Trader Joe’s to me is about 45minutes away, so I buy literally 3+ of these spices at a time.

These three ingredient roasted carrots make a great side dish, especially with red meats or poultry. Give them a try, I think the whole family will love them.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. While oven preheats, cut carrots into chunks. I like mine thinner so they get quite crispy. That's how I started to enjoy these carrots.
  3. Coat in the oil. Again, it doesn't have to be avocado oil, just something with a higher smoke point.
  4. Shake on the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. I don't typically measure this but do approximately 3tbsp. Also, it's okay if the seasoning doesn't stick to the carrots completely. You can always scoop the extra on after the carrots are done cooking.
  5. Roast for approximately 25 minutes.
  6. Broil for 3 minutes. Enjoy! These are best served immediately.
Recipe Notes
  • While these are best served fresh, they reheat well. The reheated three ingredient roasted carrots just aren't crispy.
  • If you don't live near a Trader Joe's, there are some of the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning sold on Amazon...but I'm not sure who is selling them (I don't think it's actually Trader Joe's despite the name). So purchase at your own risk {link}
  • For extra crispy carrots (my favorite!) put your pans into the oven as it pre-heats. Then, when you put your carrots on the pan, that side gets a nice sear. I do this for ALL roasted vegetables!
