What Ingredients You Need

This simple, rustic recipe can be made with either dried or fresh herbs. It works well for roasting nearly any hearty veggies you like!

Here are the ingredients we used to make these deliciously savory and tender Herb Roasted Potatoes with Carrots:

  • Mini potatoes – We used baby Dutch yellow potatoes, but you can also use small Yukon Gold, mini red potatoes, fingerling potatoes, or sweet potatoes cut into 1-inch chunks.
  • Carrots – Or other sturdy root vegetables that can hold up to high heat roasting, such as turnips, beets, brussels sprouts, or cauliflower.
  • Olive oil – Or your favorite high-temperature cooking oil for roasting, such as sunflower oil.
  • Seasonings – We included dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley in this recipe.
  • Melted butter – Swap with melted coconut oil or plant-based butter substitute for a vegetarian or vegan side dish.

Try adding a pinch of cayenne for some heat, or lemon pepper seasoning to serve with a citrus-forward main dish.

How to Make Easy Oven-Roasted Veggies with Herbs

The Best Roasted Potatoes and Carrots instructions only take about ten minutes to prep in three easy steps…

  1. Cut. First, cut the largest of the mini potatoes in half, leaving the small potatoes whole. Peel and chop the carrots into large rounds. Place the veggies on a baking sheet.
  2. Season. Then pour the oil and seasonings over the veggies.
  3. Coat. Toss to thoroughly coat, and spread the carrots and potatoes evenly on the sheet pan.
  4. Roast. Once prepped, roast the vegetables in a preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, until the carrots and potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Then add the melted butter and fresh parsley to the baking sheet, and toss to coat.

The outside of the potatoes and carrots should be lightly caramelized and crisp, while tender on the inside with a bit of bite.

Serve warm with your choice of main dishes. I hope your family loves this healthy, satisfying side as much as we do!

How Long Can I Keep Leftovers?

Leftover roasted veggies are great to keep and use in lunch meal preps throughout the week. Stored in an airtight container they will keep well for up to 5 days.

Microwave leftovers for quick reheating, or toss back in the oven on a baking sheet for 10-15 minutes until hot.

Why Did My Veggies Not Cook The Same?

Carrots can take longer to roast than potatoes, so in order to make sure that they roast in the same amount of time, make the carrot pieces smaller than the potatoes and you will have a much more even bake.
