Quick Butter Roasted Carrot Coins

These carrot coins are one of my favorite go-to vegetables for a quick weeknight dinner. They are easy to make, they are crunchy and filled with flavor. This time I found some rainbow carrots and used them, this made for a beautiful display of color.

You can use a lot of different herbs and spices to flavor the carrots, normally I use the same spices I use in the rest of the meal, that day.

Serves 4


  • 8-10 carrots, scrubbed and ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon butter or oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs thyme, leaves only


Cut the carrots in bite-sized coins. Heat the butter in a skillet, Add garlic and thyme when the butter is melted, but before it is browned. Stir the garlic to flavor the butter. Add the carrot coins and cook while stirring until the carrots are softened, but still have a bite. I cooked them for 2-3 minutes. 

Sprinkle with some more thyme and serve with your dinner.
