Roasted carrot is one side dish I always make at home. The reason is simple: little G only eats carrots and not other vegetables.
Secondly, roasted carrots are always so easy to make and tasty and I love them, too. This Lemon Parmesan Roasted Carrots recipe is a new hit.

Carrots are naturally sweet so I didn’t use any honey in this recipe. Instead I added some freshly squeezed lemon juice to lend a citrusy tang to the carrots.
To make this roasted carrots recipe extra flavorful, I top the carrots with generous sprinkles of Parmesan cheese.
The end result is tender carrots with crusty and addictive Parmesan cheese. Together with the minced garlic, every bite is bursting with garlicky, cheesy and lemony flavors.
I made my amazing Seafood Pasta to go with this side dish.
