Ginger Garlic Carrots

Some people spend hours on Sundays making delicious tomato sauces and braised meats. We wind completely down on Sundays and make quick, simple dinners so we can rest for every last second of the weekend before our hectic week start up again. Carrots are so popular in our house that we buy 10 pounds of them at a time. Between snacking and roasting, they usually barely last a week.

I hesitate to even refer to this dish as a recipe. It is more a couple of quick tips to a nice side dish.

We start by peeling and slicing 2 pounds of carrots. Mince 3 cloves of garlic and a ½ inch knob of ginger. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and toss with 2 tablespoons of canola oil and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Just a few ingredients take roasted carrots to a whole new level! Great with Asian dishes or grilled meats.

Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet and roast at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

You can also make the dish just as easily without the ginger and garlic. In our house, when making plain roasted carrots, I use 1 teaspoon of garlic salt. Cook at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

  1. Yum!

    I made this recipe as stated, but added a bit of dry dill right when I removed the carrots from the oven. Absolutely delicious!

  2. These are delicious! I was looking for a healthy way to get more ginger in my diet. The garlic and ginger combo reminds me a little of Indian cooking. Amazing, I’ll be making these again!

  3. I have a question, while making your bacon garlic pork loin in the crock pot on low, could a person do this carrot recipe without the ginger in the bottom and around the pork loin of the crock pot for the amount of same time or how much time will it take to do the carrots in the same crock pot with the pork loin?

    1. yes, start with 1/2 teaspoon then adjust to taste. Just toss everything together then touch with your finger and see if its too gingery, adjust as needed.

  4. What is the green stuff? Many carrot recipes show some green herb, but none is listed in the recipe.

  5. I would like to thank you for the corn beef recipe, I wondered into your sight, so I decided to try it. I will let you know how it turns out being I just put it in the slow cooker.
