Easy Roasted Carrots Recipe for Thanksgiving Dinner

Showstopper Roasted Carrots

These 3-ingredient whole roasted carrots are the easiest of easy. Because of their sugar content, roasting carrots results in a caramelized, crunchy outer layer with a pillowy creamy center. All they need is a pinch of salt and a bit of coconut oil to bring out their natural, vibrant flavor. There are so many rich flavors battling at the Thanksgiving table, making this simple roasted carrots recipe a welcome accompaniment to the dinner.

This carrot side dish, along with green beans with hazelnuts and smashed baked potatoes can be placed in the oven at the same time on three racks, and they roast up to perfection. Roasted carrots are an easy low carb side dishes for chicken or steak, not just your Thanksgiving turkey. BONUS: If you’re planning a vegan Thanksgiving, this trio of vegetable sides is approved!

Easy Roasted Carrots

It’s no secret that while the turkey holds the spotlight as the iconic symbol of Thanksgiving, the real star of the meal is the sides, especially these vibrant, flavorful whole roasted carrots. Sides have been elevated to their own level of glory, with special care put into seasoning them just right and sprinkling them with garnishes to impress (and for your perfectly styled Thanksgiving instagram photo).

Easy Thanksgiving sides don’t get simpler than the 3 ingredients and sheet pan in my roasted carrots recipe. Choose an array of colorful carrots with their green tops intact. Snap them off leaving an inch or so at the top and roast with a bit of coconut oil and salt. Carrots with their tops still in tact are more common at standard grocers during the holiday season. If you have trouble finding them, head to the farmers market or organic grocer.
