  • 1 pound fresh carrots
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large onion sliced thin
  • 6 Tablespoons butter


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly coat the carrots and sliced onion with olive oil, place them in a roasting pan or on a baking sheet with sides. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 - 45 minutes at 400 degrees or until tender crisp.
  • Right before the cooking time for the carrots is up place 6 Tablespoons of butter into a medium sauce pan.  Heat the butter until it's melted. Cook and stir the melted butter until it's golden brown. Watch carefully, butter can go from browned to burnt quickly. Place the carrots and onion on a serving platter and pour the browned butter over the roasted carrots and onions. If you're watching your fat intake, the amounts of butter and olive oil in the recipe can certainly be cut back without, in my opinion, hurting the end results.
