A simple side of perfectly roasted carrots is the breather a crowded Thanksgiving table needs—a bit of palate relief (and ease for the cook) that still looks elegant. Sweet, slightly firm, and tossed with fresh parsley and cilantro, these carrots would fit here and all season long. Use any remaining cilantro in leftover turkey tacos or chili. For an extra-pretty presentation, cut the carrot pieces at a 45° angle before roasting.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Combine oil, thyme, salt, pepper, 1 1/2 tablespoons cilantro, 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley, and carrots in a large bowl; toss to coat.

Step 3

Arrange carrot mixture on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; bake at 400°F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and tender, stirring once after 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons cilantro and remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley.
