Whole Baked Carrots with Thyme

Healthy Baked thyme carrot recipe.jpg

Carrots are a delicious vegetable (I love them!) and are very easy to cook. These whole baked dutch carrots are a great side to most dishes.

As the oven is already on, you may as well bake the whole meal. Try salmon or pesto chicken.

Asparagus, cauliflower, brussel sprouts are other veggies that are great when baked (and will take a similar time). 

This recipe uses dutch carrots, which you'll see around more a lot these days. They are skinnier than normal carrot with green stems coming out the top. They look beautiful!

If you use normal carrots, maybe slice them up before so they cook properly. 

Tip: Don't chop off all the stems. You can eat them! They go crispy and yummy. Just make sure you rinse them properly...
