How to make oven roasted potatoes and carrots
Making roasted potatoes and carrots is simple. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Next, place halved baby potatoes and carrot chunks in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and add garlic, salt and pepper. Toss ingredients in the bowl to coat and then spread in a single layer onto a prepared baking sheet.
Roast the vegetables in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, tossing and flipping about halfway through baking. Carrots and potatoes should be tender and starting to brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with parsley before serving.
Should you boil potatoes before roasting?
You don’t need to boil the potatoes! Boiling your potatoes before roasting helps them to have a crispy outside coating. If you boil your potatoes before you roast, make sure to cut the time spent roasting in the oven. For this recipe, we suggest cutting the cook time by 10 minutes.
Other herbs to serve with vegetables
Many herbs and seasonings pair well with potatoes and carrots. In addition to fresh parsley, try oregano, thyme, rosemary or a little bit of lemon with the vegetables. Always season with salt and pepper.
