Macronutrient Balance: 1g Protein / 3g Fat / 8g Carbohydrates - this makes 5 servings
1 lb of petite heirloom/multicolored carrots
1 tsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
On a baking sheet, spread out the carrots so they aren't over crowded, and drizzle with olive oil, thyme and salt and evenly coat them.
Cook carrots for 20 minutes, moving around halfway through. These will still have a nice crunch to them, so if you want them softer cook them for an additional 5 minutes.
Serve right away or warm.
