Recipe by: Green Healthy Cooking
1 lbs carrots (450g)
1/2 lbs broccolini (225g)
1.5 oz butter
2 cloves garlic (20g)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Salt
6 rounds to the pepper mill
Preheat oven to 400 F (200°C).
Wash (do not peel) carrots and broccolini well and dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel.
Cut thick carrots lengthwise in two and leave thing ones as is. Pieces should not be thicker than your thumb.
In a small saucepan, melt butter over very low heat. Once melted, add crushed garlic, salt and pepper to it and whisk until well combined.
On a large olive oil greased cookie sheet or baking sheet lay out all carrots in a single layer and rub in half of the seasoned garlic butter into the carrots with your hands. Making sure they are covered all over.
Put in hot oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.
In the meantime, put broccolini in a large bowl and add rest of seasoned garlic butter and rub into broccolini as good as possible to cover them completely in butter.
Once timer goes off, add broccolini to cookie/baking sheet trying to keep them and carrots all in one layer.
Put back in the oven and bake for a further 25-35 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. I like mine crisper, so I only put them in another 25 minutes.
