Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

Carrots become beautifully glazed and tender with just a little brown sugar and a quick, high-heat roast. To clean up, simply toss the foil. Use this simple roasted-carrot method as a base, and then layer on other flavor combinations as you like. Try smoky chipotle chile powder, fragrant garam masala, or tart ground sumac.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound small multicolored carrots, trimmed
