These roasted carrots are very tasty!
The carrots are tender but have a bit of a crunch to them from the Parmesan, and from roasting in garlic butter.
It’s the perfect bite!
Are Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots Considered Keto?
While most vegetables are considered low-carb and keto-friendly, carrots belong to the starchy group of vegetables like potatoes and corn.
One cup of baby carrots has approximately 11 grams of carbohydrates and 5 grams of sugar.
Eating a small amount of carrots on the keto diet is okay, but you will have to reserve carbs elsewhere to cover them.
Ingredients for Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots
Only 5 ingredients!
- Baby Carrots or Whole Carrots, cut into 3″ long pieces that are ½″ thick
I used baby carrots, but whole carrots can be used, the bake time may vary a little depending on the width of the carrots.
Slice them into 3″ long pieces that are ½″ thick.
If you don’t have parchment paper – no problem! Lightly grease the pan instead.
Even with the butter in the recipe, they begin to stick as they bake. Using a nonstick cooking spray can help.
How to Make Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots
- Drizzle the carrots with melted garlic butter and toss it in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.
- After baking for 10 minutes, stir the carrots, sprinkle with Parmesan & parsley, and bake for an additional ten minutes. It’s that easy!
Want More Than Carrots?
It’s easy to add in broccoli, asparagus, diced potatoes, onion, parsnips, cauliflower, mushrooms, or Brussels sprouts to the baking pan.
If so, you will simply need to add more garlic butter for baking. Also, check for doneness by piercing the vegetables.
