Fall Season Is Carrot Season

As soon as the summer season comes to an end, we see our supermarkets fully stocked with pumpkins and squash. But did you know carrots are also a fall vegetable? That’s right. Although they’re usually available year-round, they peak in the fall. And every season, I love making these roasted sage carrots quite a few times. There is so much you can do with carrots. I can’t get enough of them!

Tips And Tricks For Easy Roasted Sage Carrots

This side dish is really easy to make. But there are a few things you can do (and avoid) to make sure they’re the best-roasted carrots!

Cut your carrots diagonally. Hear me out. Cutting them diagonally gets you the best flavor. Plus, they plate beautifully this way!

You’ll get that earthy sage flavor instead of burnt, bitter herbs.

If you’re looking to take these roasted carrots up a notch, add a pinch of salt after you roast the carrots with sage. Roasted carrots are so delicious on their own, that is why I don’t add so many extra ingredients. But combine them with sage and you get a sweet surprise!
Let your carrots breathe. When roasting them, give the carrots space. This allows them to roast quickly and evenly
