Recipe Roasted Carrots & Mushrooms with Thyme

Roasted Carrots and Mushrooms with Thyme

Roasted Carrots and Mushrooms with Thyme(Makes 3-4 servings, recipe created by Kalyn)

Ingredients:
8-10 oz. carrots (I used 4 medium-sized organic carrots; you can use baby carrots, but whole carrots are more flavorful.)
8 oz sliced mushrooms (I buy the pre-washed kind, but wash if needed)
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. dried thyme or 1 T chopped fresh thyme leaves
salt/pepper to taste
fresh chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450F/230C.Peel carrots if desired. Cut carrots on diagonal into slices about 1/4 – 3/8 inch thick. Toss carrots with 1 T olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Spread on large roasting pan (it should be big enough that the carrots are in a single layer). Roast carrots 15 minutes.While carrots are roasting, wash mushrooms and spin dry or dry with paper towels. Slice mushrooms into even slices, slightly thicker than carrots. Using the same bowl as you tossed the carrots in, toss mushrooms with 1 T of olive oil.

Remove carrots from oven, stir, add mushrooms and roast 10-15 minutes more. Serve hot, sprinkled with fresh parsley if using.

Toss the carrots with 1 T olive oil. salt, pepper, and 1 T of fresh thyme (or a smaller amount of dried thyme will work just fine here.)

Spread out carrots in a single layer on a roasting pan that you’ve brushed with a little olive oil and roast for 15 minutes.

While the carrots roast, wash mushrooms, spin dry or dry with paper towels, and slice into even slices, slightly thicker than the carrots.

Use the same bowl you tossed the carrots in, and toss mushrooms with second T of olive oil.

After 15 minutes, stir carrots, add mushrooms, stir again and roast 10-15 minutes more, until carrots are browned and tender and mushrooms are cooked and all liquid has evaporated. Serve hot, sprinkled with fresh parsley if desired.
