1 TBSP fresh thyme, chopped

Arrange the carrots on a single layer of a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the olive oil, all the desired herbs above (or other ones that you like), salt and pepper and lemon juice, and garlic. Whisk until well combined and then pour over the carrots. Sprinkle with cheese if desired.

Roast at 400 degrees for about 20 – 30 minutes (cooking time varies and depends on the width of the carrots you use). When they are fork tender they are done. These are delicious when served warm. If you would like to pour a delicious dressing on top of them (instead of the cheese), you could make this one: Lemon Dill Dressing or my favorite Scallion Ranch Dressing.
