Za’atar Roasted Carrots are a nice change from traditional roasted carrots. The earthy za’atar mixed with the fresh parsley adds a nice flavor to the natural sweetness that roasting carrots brings out. 



For the Za’atar Roasted Carrots:

  • 16 ounces of carrots, left whole if they are small carrots or cut into slices
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons za’atar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  • Fresh parsley, chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil, garlic, za’atar, salt and pepper. Add the carrots and toss until the carrots are covered.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and spread the carrots in an even layer on the baking sheet.

Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the carrots are tender, flipping the carrots over once.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley.


I like to sometimes drizzle a tahini garlic sauce on top. For the recipe to make the sauce go to this recipe for Grilled Beef Kafta.

I like to go with 2 Tablespoons of za’atar but that can be overwhelming for some people. I recommend starting with 1 Tablespoons, roasting the carrots and then tasting them. From this point you can sprinkle more za’atar over the cooker carrots if you want to.
