Baked Carrots With Smoked Paprika


As simple as these are they are very popular with my boys!

For years the boys would only eat raw carrots and even today would choose raw over cooked, enter smoked paprika to jazz up their cooked carrots!

If you are wanting to make this vegan or fat free, omit the butter and add around a teaspoon of water. If you are cooking on a BBQ then just slide the foil packet onto the grill.

Serves 4-6 depending on the size of you bunches of carrots. Ours come with their green tops still attached, these go straight out to the chooks for a treat.


2 large bunches of baby or Dutch carrots, greenery removed

10-20g butter or a little water

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

a really good grind of fresh peppper

a little pinch of salt flakes


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade.

Take a long piece if kitchen foil and top it with a slightly shorter piece of baking parchment.

Pop the carrots onto the baking parchment, dot with butter or water and sprinkle over the smoked paprika, pepper and salt.

Fold the parchment to create a sealed parcel and repeat with the foil so no steam can escape.

Slide the parcel onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes.

Allow to sit for three minutes before opening.
