Roasted Carrots

By Monica Resinger

These are so good, my kids (who are old enough to cook by themselves) make them for snacks!

Desired amount of carrots washed and cut in half lengthwise, then thirds Olive Oil (if you don't have olive oil, you can substitute vegetable oil) Seasoning Salt

Place carrots on a baking sheet and drizzle with enough olive oil to coat. Sprinkle with seasoning salt to taste, then mix it all up so the olive oil coats the carrots well (I use my hands, but you could also use a spatula or big spoon). Roast in a 375*F oven for around 30 minutes, then check to see if the carrots are caramelized (browned) and soft. The caramelization is what makes these so good, so this is where you decide if you want more caramelization or if they are ready now. If they aren't getting color yet, cook until they do... the more color, the better they are. Be careful though because they can also burn, so keep an eye on them.
