Oven Roasted Rainbow-Colored Carrots with Serving Pieces

Oven Roasted Whole Carrots

Roasted Whole Carrots are a scrumptious, easy to prepare side dish that provides lots of color on the plate!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


  • 1 1/2 pounds (around 20) small-ish carrots (4 to 6 inches in length)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh Italian (flat leaf) parsley, for garnish
  • Chopped roasted nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts, etc.), for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Peel carrots, trim green tops to around 1-inch long.
  3. Place carrots in a single layer on a large rimmed cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, and toss (I like to use my hands). Roast for around 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so, until carrots are just tender and not mushy.
  4. Remove from oven and place carrots on a serving platter. Garnish with chopped parsley and nuts (if using).
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.
