I knew I wanted to serve carrots at my Frozen dinner party early on as an homage to both Olaf, the snowman with a carrot nose, and Sven, the carrot-loving reindeer. If there’s one great entertaining tip I learned from watching Barefoot Contessa all these years, it’s that not every dish at a dinner party has to be – or should be – rich. So I decided to go with a simple roasted carrot side dish that wouldn’t compete with my show-stopping Garlic and Gruyere Smashed Potatoes.
This is hardly a recipe. This should be titled How to Roast Carrots. For heaven’s sake, don’t measure. use this same method for any amount of carrots you’d like, just don’t over crowd the pan. A whopping four bundles fit nicely on a jelly roll sheet. I used maple sea salt here and it was phenomenal.
