  • 20 rainbow carrots
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • ¼ tsp. dried oregano


  1. Preheat the oven to 450º F. Peel the carrots, cut off the ends, and trim the stems, leaving about 2 inches of greenery. Rinse the carrots and pat them dry.
  2. Place the carrots on a baking sheet lined with foil. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano. Toss to coat well.
  3. Roast the carrots for 15-17 minutes or until tender with the prick of a fork. Serve!

Recipe Notes

To preserve fresh oregano, fill a single well (or more if needed) of an ice cube tray about half full with freshly chopped oregano, then top off with water and freeze. Once solid, pop out the cubes, place in an airtight freezer bag, and freeze! To use, simply use frozen oregano (thawed) instead of dried.
