Roasted Rainbow Carrots are a classic dish that you’ll find at both fancy holiday events and on a simple weeknight dinner table! Having a go-to recipe in your back pocket makes whipping up a batch of perfectly roasted carrots whenever you’d like.



  • 2 lbs whole rainbow carrots (yellow, purple, orange, red)
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Wash carrots thoroughly, we choose not to peel the carrots, but you can.
  3. Arrange carrots on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  4. Shake the baking sheet, so the carrots roll in the olive oil, salt, and pepper and they get evenly coated
  5. Bake for 50-55 minutes until tender ( you should be able to cut the carrots with a fork). See note 1


  1. If the carrots you find at the market are pretty thin. Check the oven after 30 minutes they may require less cooking time.

Top the roasted carrots with:

  1. Avocado Cilantro Dressing
  2. Tahini Sauce
  3. Pesto Sauce
  4. Spicy Patatas Bravas Sauce
  5. Romesco
  6. Dukkah
  7. Roasted Hazelnuts
  8. Balsamic Glaze
  9. Seasonings: Sumac, Za’atar, curry, cumin, or Chili Lime seasoning
  10. Herbs: Fresh parsley or cilantro
