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. Whip these up for a side dish with color and flavor that is sure to impress everyone around the table.

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
  • 1-2 tablespoons za’atar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. 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.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and spread the carrots in an even layer on the baking sheet.
  4. Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the carrots are tender, flipping the carrots over once.
  5. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley.


  1. A drizzle of tahini garlic sauce on top is a delicious addition.
  2. 2 tablespoons of za’atar can be overwhelming for some. Start with 1 tablespoon and add more as desired.
