Mom always said “eat your carrots, help your eyes.” Rich in beta carotene, carrots not only support health but also taste amazing when roasted and tossed with Parmesan. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
1 pound fresh carrots, peeled
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450F. Cut carrots crosswise in half and then lengthwise into 1/2-in.-thick sticks. Toss carrots with oil, salt, pepper and thyme; spread evenly in a greased 15x10x10-in. baking pan.
Roast until tender and lightly browned, stirring once, 12-15 minutes. Toss with cheese.
