Found this awesome recipe through a fellow homeschooling blogger and HAD to make it! OMG it was sooooo yummy! I don't know the calorie count for my diet, but I bet it's better than the roasted potatoes I normally make! I forgot the thyme and used dill instead but it was still great.
2 lbs. baby carrots (or regular carrots, cut into chunks; baby carrots were cheaper at my store)
2 tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
10ish little garlic cloves, unpeeled
generous tsp. dried thyme
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the carrots in a 13x9 casserole and toss with oil and season with salt and pepper. Stick the garlic here and there in the pan. Sprinkle with thyme. Add 2 tbsp. water and cover tightly with foil. Bake under they are as tender as you like, 25-45 minutes. Check them a couple times to make sure they aren't drying out. Uncover for the last 5-10 minutes so they can brown a bit, if you want.
