Simply Roasted Carrots and Green Beans

Simply Roasted Carrots and Green Beans

If you read my blog occasionally, it should be no surprise that roasted veggies are my very favorite way to cook vegetables. During the winter, it’s usually the only way I cook them. The other night I served a meatless meal including, a Mushroom Sauté with Lemon and Garlic, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, and Butternut Squash with Dried Cranberries, these Roasted Carrots, and Green Beans, and a freshly baked loaf of bread with some brie cheese. It was a healthy and delicious dinner that even my kids liked.

How to Make Simply Roasted Carrots and Green Beans

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat the baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.

Toss the carrots and the green beans together on the baking sheet with some olive oil until evenly coated. Season the veggies with fresh thyme leaves and freshly cracked pepper and garlic powder, to taste. Toss until evenly coated. Remove the green beans and set them aside on a plate.

Place the carrots into the oven and roast for 20 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking. Add the green beans and cook for 10 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking, until they are fork-tender yet still a bit crisp and the carrots are tender. Remove from the oven and season well with Himalayan Sea Salt (or regular sea salt), to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Those carrots are adorable! And this is the prettiest veggie dish ever.

  2. I wondered how you’d reconciled the fact that carrots take longer to cook than just about any other veggie; great combo, Pam.
    And I saw your recipe in Relish magazine which comes in my paper once a month. I was very excited when I realized it was you! Did you get a copy; would you like me to mail mine to you?

    1. Marjie,

      I am so glad you saw that! They sent me a couple of copies of the magazine, but thanks for the offer! I think they are putting another recipe in the March issue, as well.
