Minted Carrots

Using small, slender carrots makes this an especially stunning side, but large carrots work equally well when halved lengthwise.

Minted Carrots

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February 2009


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds small carrots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint, thinly sliced


  1. Place a rimmed baking sheet on the lowest rack of oven, and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Drizzle hot sheet with 1 teaspoon oil. Carefully arrange carrots in a single layer on sheet, and drizzle with remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, shaking sheet to coat carrots. Bake, stirring every 5 minutes, until tender and deep golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle mint over carrots, and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

If making this with roast chicken or another main dish from the oven, simply place the baking sheet on the lowest rack for a few minutes to preheat.
