1 pound of baby carrots, washed and trimmed
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat your oven to 375°F.

Spread the coated baby carrots in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Roast the Baby Carrots in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are tender and caramelized.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the carrots cool for a few minutes before serving.
Serve the Roasted Baby Carrots with Honey and Thyme as a side dish or a light snack.
This recipe is both delicious and sustainable because it features baby carrots, which are a seasonal and locally-grown vegetable.
