These easy Roasted Carrots with Goat Cheese make the perfect side dish to almost any meal. Roasting these carrots to perfection beings out their natural sweetness and pairing them with goat cheese creates the best sweet and savory combo!
Carrots taste so different raw vs. cooked. Personally, I won’t eat a raw carrot. However, I will shovel tons of cooked carrots into my mouth like it’s no one’s business. They taste perfectly wonderful without having to do too much to them which makes them the most perfect and healthy side dish.
Besides being healthy and delicious, carrots are incredibly affordable. Depending on where you do your grocery shopping, you can get a bag of carrots for as low as 79 cents. This is the exact reason I chuckle when people try using the excuse “eating healthy is expensive”.

Tips for roasting your carrots
- Cut the carrots evenly – this will ensure that your carrots finish cooking at the same time. The last thing you want is for some of your carrots to be soft and others to be hard.
- Use a large baking sheet – give your carrots room to roast. You don’t want them cooking on top of each other.
- Don’t use too much oil – use just enough to coat them all and allow the seasoning to stick but not so much that they’re drenched.
- Move them around halfway through cooking – this will ensure even cooking!
