Roasted Ranch Carrots are both parts easy and delicious. The best of both worlds when you need a quick side that tastes great too. Carrots, olive oil, ranch seasoning. Easy recipe. Plus, with only 3 ingredients these fall under the healthy category.
Roasted Ranch Carrots are exactly what the name says, carrots tossed in ranch seasoning and then roasted until soft.
Roasting brings out the natural sweetness in carrots and mixed with the saltiness of the Hidden valley Ranch seasoning, it’s a perfect little veggie side dish. My favorite part of roasting veggies is always the slightly caramelized and crispy bits. The best part.
These Roasted Ranch Carrots are both delicious and easy to make. All you need is 3 ingredients.
Both! Yet another great option for this recipe is the choice to decide what cooking method works best for you.
I used the oven to cook Roasted Carrots for years and they always turned out amazing. And then came the air fryer and changed the game. I still love using the oven to roast veggies but the air fryer is quick to heat up and quick to cook. The carrots still get the very important and necessary caramelized and crispy bits, too.
Oven- 400 degrees, parchment lined or nonstick spray jelly roll cooking sheet, roast for about 20 minutes until soft
