Supplies

  • Shallow pan or baking sheet
  • Tin foil
  • Sharp knife

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs. carrots
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 5 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary
  • Black pepper to taste

Adult Preparation

Using a sharp knife, slice off the tip and end of each carrot. Peel each carrot completely. Cut carrots in half cross-wise, then cut length-wise, then cut length-wise again.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. Line a shallow pan with foil.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the carrot sticks, oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir until carrots are evenly coated.
  4. Place carrot sticks in pan, spreading them out as much as possible so they are a single layer. You may need to make 2 batches if the pan isn't big enough to arrange carrots in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender. Serve hot or at room temperature.
