Servings 4 people


  • 7 organic carrots
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan; for mixing
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan; for topping
  • 2 tablespoons grated or chopped garlic
  • 6 fresh basil leaves chopped (you can also use 1 tablespoon freeze-dried basil)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • parchment paper


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a rimmed baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  • Cut the carrots into long quarters and place them into a bowl. If you have super long carrots, you can shop them in half or even thirds to make them easier to handle.
  • Add the garlic and 1/3 cup parmesan. Toss to coat, and place the carrots onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, then remove them from the oven. Allow the carrots to cool for 3-5 minutes, then top them with the remaining parmesan and your basil, salt, and pepper.
