I’ve always loved raw carrots but never cooked until, at age 49, our neighbor Havilah fed me these at a dinner party and I finished them and then got seconds. Then, when on the Whole 30 Hell Diet, I adopted them as a staple and learned to make them myself (hence the changes by Scott since I never got a recipe).


  • 4 to 5 whole carrots quartered lengthwise preferably organic (yes organize actually makes it better)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Garlic Salt
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a 9x11 roasting pan lay out the carrots.
  3. Drizzle with the olive oil and then shake the pan so they are actually coated. 1 tbsp is really all that’s needed.
  4. Coat them with garlic powder, garlic salt, salt and pepper to your degree of preferred, salty love. I treat it as a crust but your blood pressure may argue differently. Shake them around to get the coating on all sides.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Serve and devour. Even my wife, a carrot hating, would never give carrots to bugs bunny, person will eat these.
