Being that Alaska has a shorter grow season than most places, carrots are one of it’s most widely grown vegetables. This means that there are bunches of carrots to eat in the fall and so few ways to cook them. Roasting them in the oven is one of my favorite ways to enjoy them. This recipe turned out amazing and my two-year-old agrees!

Add sliced onions on tops of the carrots.

Finish the dish by topping it with fresh thyme sprigs and squeezing half a lemon all over.
