If you've ever made roasted carrots in the oven before, you probably know they have a tendency to dry out and become tough like leather. By covering the pan during half of the baking time, they turn out moist, tender, and full of flavor.
Tender and Delicious Baked Carrots
Carrots- enough to feed your family (keep in mind they will shrink a little bit in size)
1-2 T. butter
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400.
Cut up carrots into evenly sized halves and quarters.
Place in a baking pan and season with salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of thyme. Top with small chunks of butter.
Cover with an oven-safe lid or tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes until semi-tender.
Remove the lid (or tinfoil) and flip the carrots.
eturn to oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, until the carrots are completely tender and are browned to your liking.
