Roasted Carrots on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Mmmm. Lovely sweet delicious roasted carrots. Made on the Char-Broil Big Easy in no time at all. Nothing fancy, nothing hard, just great flavor. You might think that your Big Easy is just for poultry or pork, but it’s great for making sides too. These carrots take no time at all, so you can toss them on your Big Easy while your turkey is resting.

Roasted Carrots on the Char-Broil Big EasyI like to partially cook my carrots first before putting them on the Big Easy. Cooking raw carrots over high heat  can make them dry out a bit. Cooking them just a bit first and then roasting them produces tender, juicy, flavorful carrots every single time. The same approach can be used with cauliflower and broccoli.

Roasted Carrots on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: I prefer to pre-cook my carrots before putting them on the Big Easy. You can skip that step and put them directly into the Big Easy if desired. Just add a few minutes to the cooking time to get them tender.
