Either as a Thanksgiving side dish or part of a weeknight meal, these garlic roasted carrots look impressive, are super very simple to make and full of important nutrients.

Carrots are loaded with beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant found in orange fruits and vegetables like carrots, butternut squash and cantaloupe. Beta carotene plays a role in supporting healthy vision, skin and immunity...pass the carrots, please!
