Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots have been a fun side dish I’ve used with clients for years. As a chef you look for easy, impressive, beautiful stress-free dishes that will keep your clients happy and full while letting you spend the time on the other pieces of the meal.

TheseĀ Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots are perfect, especially in their rainbow form, because they are as simple as any roasted vegetables, but pumped up with the flavor of butter, garlic and fresh cracked black pepper. The butter adds a ton of flavor and with the addition of the canola oil you can rest easy knowing it won’t burn in the oven.

When seasoning theseĀ Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots make sure you’re paying attention to your ingredients. When you have a recipe with just a few ingredients they tend to each stand out a bit more.

This means using a good Kosher salt (or sea salt or fleur de sel) and a fresh cracked black pepper will create a much more flavorful dish than if you were to grab your nearest salt and pepper shaker.

Want to add some different flavors to the mix?

  • Add in your favorite fresh herbs – rosemary, oregano, thyme, etc.
  • Spice it up a little with cayenne pepper.
  • Bring in a fun twist with a bit of minced ginger as well.
  • Toss with honey or maple syrup at the end of roasting.

Tools used in the making of these Garlic Butter Roasted Carrots:
Kosher Salt: This salt is a no brainer. For just a couple of dollars the flavor of this salt is fantastic as a replacement for most meals. I wouldn’t swap it in for baking situations, but there is almost no circumstances in which I won’t use this instead of table salt for cooking.
Fleur de Sel: When I bought my first box of this I actually had to order it from the UK Amazon site. The crystals are beautiful diamond shapes and the flavors are perfect for an impressive finish or for chocolate.
Sea Salt: A nice large bottle of sea salt with a low price tag, you can keep this bottle for a long time and always have access to a nice finishing salt.
