Jamie Oliver Baked Carrots
Super easy peasy and pucker baked carrots. This recipe is close to the one that Jamie Oliver prepared in Season 2 of his Naked Chef show, I think the episode was "A bun in the oven".
peeled, whole smashed
This is a very easy way to make carrots for a holiday side dish or anytime you want to keep cleanup to a minimum. Instead of a baking dish this recipe uses a foil packet for truly instant tidy up.
Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃).
Peel or scrub the carrots.
Use a sheet of aluminum foil for the baking "dish", pull out about twice as much so you can fold it over to enclose the carrots in a packet.
Place the prepared carrots in the middle of one half of the foil.
Add the garlic, tucking under the carrots.
Sprinkle the cumin over the top, add salt and pepper to taste.
Dot with knobs of butter.
Fold up two of the edges of the foil (folding several times) leaving one end of the foil packet open.
Add the white wine (or vermouth) into the open end and seal it up by folding over several times.
Pop it into the oven for 30 to 35 minutes.
Be careful opening the foil to avoid burning yourself due to the buildup of steam.
Serve in the foil or transfer to a serving platter.
