This recipe and photo were brought forth by Cate O'Malley at Paper Palate.  We altered the recipe only slightly to note dairy-free margarine rather than butter.  The results should be equally delicious.

Cate O'Malley, Paper Palate - "Usually when I make carrots, they're roasted. It's a super simple way to make them, and produces a tender, sweet bite every time. Recently, when flipping through a copy of Paula Deen’s magazine though, I spied a recipe for her Herbed Carrots and decided to give it a whirl.

A really simple process, I was quite surprised as to how quickly they lost their crunch and turned into a tender, buttery morsel. Next time, I'd cut back on the butter [margarine] just a smidge, but I'd definitely make them again, and they were perfect with the Roast Chicken and potatoes I served.
Serves: 2 servings
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free margarine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 large carrots, sliced to ¼-inch thickness
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. In a small skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat until dairy-free margarine is melted.
  2. Add thyme and garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add carrots, salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes or until carrots are crisp tender.
  4. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs, if desired.
