Ingredients
  • 2 pounds whole carrots washed and peeled or unpeeled if you prefer
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill
  • flaked sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

  2. Lightly grease a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil spray; set aside.
  3. Trim the tops and ends of the carrots and cut in half lengthwise. Place the sliced carrots onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Melt the butter and brown sugar together in a microwave safe measuring cup. Mix to combine well. Stir in the black pepper. IF you want a smoother sauce, skip the next step and go right to roasting!

  5. Pour half of the sauce over the carrots. Shake the pan to evenly coat the carrots in the mixture and then re-arrange in a single layer.
  6. Cover the baking pan with foil and roast for 15 minutes. Remove the tinfoil,  stir the dill into the remainder of the sauce  then drizzle on top of the carrots evenly. 

  7. Cook uncovered for another 10-15 minutes or until the carrots reach desired tenderness. Some people prefer their carrots with slight crunch, so cook to your liking.

  8. Remove from the oven, plate on your serving tray and sprinkle with sea salt flakes if desired.
