• 600 grams small bunched carrots, tops trimmed and cleaned
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, unpeeled and bashed
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan. Put the carrots into an oven dish with the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, thyme and salt. Toss well then cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, gently toss the carrots around, then return to the oven for 10 minutes until golden brown. Either serve immediately or cover with foil and reheat just before serving.
