How do I make low FODMAP Carrots?
This is definitely something you can prep ahead of time and then throw in the oven when it’s time to eat. They also hold well in the fridge, so they can be made ahead of time and reheated when ready to serve.
Cut your carrots, and season them with olive, salt, pepper, and herbs. Put them on a baking sheet in one layer. This part is very important! If you crowd the carrots, they will steam in the oven. Which isn’t a problem! But you won’t get the characteristic golden brown color that we look for with roasting. If you have a lot of carrots or have small baking pans, divide the carrots into 2 batches so the pan isn’t too crowded.
Then toss the carrots in the oven, and let them go!
