Orange Roasted Carrots
Good olive oil
kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
grated orange zest
freshly squeezed orange juice
Preheat the oven to 450°. Remove the tops and scrub the carrots with a vegetable brush. Cut the carrots in long diagonal slices. (You want fairly uniform sticks about 4 inches long by ½ inch wide.)
Place the carrots on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Toss well with your hands and spread out in one layer.
Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until the carrots are lightly browned and tender. Sprinkle with the orange zest, orange juice, and salt and toss well. Serve hot or at room temperature.
