This Chardonnay Roasted Carrot recipe is so simple and yet so flavorful and delicious. They could not be any easier to make and requires zero clean up.
I shared this Herbes de Provence Chicken Recipe with you recently, and these carrots deserve a post of their own. This Roasted Chardonnay Carrot recipe is so simple and yet so flavorful and delicious. They could not be any easier to make and zero clean up. They are cooked in a tin foil packet and you throw it away when they are done. This side dish is great to throw in the oven alongside a chicken, salmon, ham, or whatever you are roasting. I always serve these next to my Easter ham. My children love carrots cooked this way and will happily eat these by themselves for dinner.
This recipe comes from one of my favourite chefs Jamie Oliver.
Chardonnay Roasted Carrots Ingredients //
- 1 pound organic carrots, peeled and sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly crushed
- a few sprigs of fresh thyme (I only had dried so I used about a half teaspoon)
- salt and pepper
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 2/3 cup Chardonnay or other white wine (I used a Pinot Grigio because that is what I had open)
- tin foil
How to Make // The Steps
Step 1: Tear off a large sheet of tin foil and double it over. Add the carrots, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Step 2: Put a few Tablespoons of butter on top of the carrots.
Step 3: Pour about a glassful of wine over the carrots.
Step 4: Seal the tin foil package up and place it in a small baking dish.
Step 5: Roast in a preheated 425-degree oven for about 30 to 45 minutes. I like my carrots a little more crunchy, so I take them out closer to 30 minutes.
What to Serve Alongside these Carrots //
I usually serve these Chardonnay carrots as a side dish with Herbes de Provence Chicken or Ginger Salmon but sometimes I prepare these as a quick evening snack for my family and serve these with one of my favourite yogurt herb dipping sauce and it compliments these carrots so well.
Want to Substitute Chardonnay for Another Wine //
There have been times when I have run out of Chardonnay while making these carrots and simply used another wine of my choice for this recipe. After trying a few different wines, I have to admit these carrots have turned out the best with Chardonnay but that does not mean you can’t use another wine. Just make sure that the wine is good quality and something you would drink out of a glass. The wine is a key ingredient in this recipe so make sure its of superior quality.
