This roasted carrots recipe is the perfect side dish for any meal. There are much sweeter versions of roasted carrot recipes, but I really love this more savory preparation. Brown butter sage sauce is so easy to make and pairs well with so many other dishes such as my Pumpkin Agnolotti.

Surprisingly I am actually not a huge fan of carrots, but this is the only way I’ll eat them. This roasted carrots recipe is so simple and easy. I really like using the already peeled heirloom carrots from Trader Joes, but this recipe works great with any type. I think keeping the tops on the carrots provides a much prettier presentation.

Once your carrots are peeled, put them in a pan that is very lightly sprayed with olive oil. Add a light spray to the top of your carrots and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then roast them for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees until they are fork-tender.

When any recipe calls for Olive Oil I really like to use my Brown Butter Sage Roasted Carrots Recipe 3 so I don’t overdo it with the oil.

Once your carrots are ready, in a separate pan you’re going to melt about 2 tbsp. For brown butter sauce, you’re going to let the butter simmer at medium to medium-high heat until the butter stops foaming. Once the butter begins to turn a very slight brown you will then add your sage leaves which will get nice and crispy. Once your sage is crispy, which takes just about 30 seconds, you’ll drizzle this sauce over your carrots and they are ready to be served.
