Ingredients:
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt (optional)
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Tear a large piece of aluminum foil, about 24" long. Spread the carrots out evenly over one half. Sprinkle with the vinegar, rosemary, garlic, and paprika. Season with optional salt and pepper. Drizzle with the olive oil and fold the opposite end over, folding around the edges to make a neat package with no openings.

Place the package on a baking sheet and bake 20 – 25 minutes, until the carrots are tender when pierced with a knife. Serve immediately.
