Garlic Baked Grated Carrots


I can imagine you all thinking, “what?” about a baked carrot recipe, but let me just tell you, you will not believe how good these are.

Actually, I usually forget how good these are (because who thinks about cooked carrots, really?) until I put them back on the menu after the glut of glorious summer vegetables are done.

Maybe these wouldn’t taste so good in the summer, I don’t know, but last night with rice and baked chicken, these were so good I was cleaning the bowl after dinner.

So I decided I had to share.

Plus, really, there’s not a lot of things more easy than carrots – the dish cost about .75, took about 5 minutes to put together and 30 minutes in the oven.

Go ahead and give them a try:


Garlic Baked Grated Carrots

  • 3-4 c. peeled and grated carrots
  • 1 Tb. melted butter
  • 1 Tb. olive oil (you could use one or the other, but I like to do both)
  • 1 Tb. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tb. chopped chives (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place grated carrots in a 1-1/2 to 2 qt. casserole.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.


And that’s it. Prepare to be amazed.

    I will definitely be trying these. I love that carrots are so inexpensive, but most recipes for carrotts are only glazed carrots. I use honey when I make them instead of sugar, but still…..

    This looks like a great alternative. Thanks!

    Thank you, Jami!!
