Roasted Carrots and Haricot Verts – 20151226_165402_resized_1

What you need:

  • 1 # of small, young carrots
  • 1 # of haricot verts (you can also use thin, tender green beans)
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon fresh, chopped thyme leaves


How to Do it:

Wash the vegetables and allow them to dry on a clean cloth.  Do not cut off the ends of the beans or the carrots.

Toss the vegetables with the oil and the seasonings.


Roast at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the carrots are fork tender but still firm.

Remove from heat and serve immediately!

I enjoy eating the leftovers cold with my fingers!

Serves 5-6

    Well Helen you know how to make veggies look good, although I admit I’ve never heard of a haricot vert. I guess I just stick with the usual carrots, peas, corn, green beans and asparagus for a change.

    Thanks for linking up with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party!!

      haricot verts are just a small green bean. The flavor is a slightly more delicate, but regular fresh green beans work great!
