Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves , minced, or 1 1/2 tsp bottled chopped garlic
  • 3 tbsp bottled sun-dried tomato salad dressing
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Line a baking sheet with foil. In a medium-size bowl, toss carrots with garlic, salad dressing and salt. Turn onto pan. Roast until carrots are lightly glazed, about 20 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking.
