For a medley of flavors, also try Rach’s Curry-Roasted Carrots and Honey-Soy Oven Glazed Carrots.


  • 5-6 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced, seeds discarded
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped


Pre-heat the oven to 375ºF.

On a baking sheet, toss the carrots with the EVOO, lemon slices, capers and some salt and pepper. Roast, turning occasionally, until tender, about 30 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven, toss the carrots with the dill. Serve warm.
