Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in upper and lower third of oven; preheat to 450 degrees F.

  • Trim carrots and cut in half lengthwise. Toss with oil and salt in a large bowl. Divide between 2 large rimmed baking sheets and spread in an even layer.

  • Roast the carrots, stirring once and switching the pans top to bottom halfway through, until tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until just starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. When the butter stops bubbling, stir in sage. Transfer the carrots to a serving dish and drizzle the sage brown butter over them. Garnish with fresh sage, if desired.


Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
