Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds Carrots, multi-colored, organic if possible
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed See tips
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Parsley, chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon Almonds, sliced

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375 and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Position the oven rack to the lower third.
  • Wash, peel, rewash and trim the ends of the carrots. Slice in half and then slice each half in half lengthwise, if large.
    Toss the carrots with olive oil, salt, pepper and the fresh lemon (or orange) juice.
    Spread the carrots out on the large baking sheet and pour any remaining liquid from the bowl on top.
    Place in the oven and roast, turning the carrots with a spatula every 15-20 minutes until fork tender, between 50-60 minutes (the time will vary depending on your oven).
    Remove from oven and place on a platter
    Garnish with fresh parsley and sliced almonds.

Notes

  • Use freshly squeezed orange juice instead of lemon juice for slightly different, but very delicious flavor. 
  • Use all orange carrots if that's what you can find.  Any variety will work!
