Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and trim the carrots. Peeling is optional. If the carrots are baby size, leave them whole. Cut larger carrots into chunks or thick slices (carrots shrink when cooking).


On a foil-lined baking sheet, toss the carrots with the olive oil. Arrange the carrots in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Roast uncovered until tender when pierced with a knife, about 20 minutes (depending on the size of the pieces), shaking the pan occasionally to turn the carrots.


Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve.

From Maryann Carpenter of Coastal Organics. Always buy carrots with the green tops attached to ensure freshness, she says. If available, use a variety of colors. And if you prefer, use chopped fresh dill instead of parsley.
