Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Peel the carrots and cut diagonally into thirds. If the carrots are large, half or quarter the pieces (aiming for uniform so the pieces will cook evenly).
  3. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and the leaves stripped from the thyme sprigs.
  4. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  5. Crumble goat cheese over the warm carrots and serve.

I've made this a number of times and it always pleases. Like Juliunruly, I often use a bunch of mixed color carrots from our CSA. Easy prep and great presentation for guests. If you find your goat cheese is a bit past its prime (or just flat out missing from the fridge), not to worry. The carrots will still be yummy. The goat cheese does put this over the top, though :)

Love love love! Used a medley of colorful carrots from our CSA box for this, and served as a side to the roast chicken with mustard and grapes (also from the site).

What a wonderful and simple side dish. I have prepared this several times. I will keep this one in my rotation of dishes to prepare for sure.
