Sandra’s Top Tips

  • Use fresh firm carrots with a bright orange color and smooth skin
  • Cut your carrots the same size so that they all cook evenly, you do not want the smaller carrots to be done and the bigger carrots too crunchy!!
  • Make them ahead of time to save time during the holidays stored in the fridge, follow our reheating instructions below as they are best served warm
  • Watch carefully to prevent burning or overcooking, they should be tender and slightly crispy, caramelized but not overly charred

Storage and reheating instructions

Store any leftover roasted carrots in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.

You can reheat them in a 350°F oven covered with foil for 10 to 15 minutes or until warmed through. Reheat them using a microwave safe dish for 30 second intervals or in the skillet on the stove over a medium heat until warmed through. Check that you are not overcooking them while reheating as they will become mushy.
