These Parmesan-Crusted Carrots Will Have You Crunching All Day Long

You'll be using this crunchy carrot hack for all your snacks.

Carrots have been some of my favorite snacks since I was a kid—bright, crunchy and delicious. No need to cook or roast ’em, I’d just eat them as is until the bag ran out. Carrots are amazing for so many reasons. They’re packed with fiber, potassium and beta-carotene (to name a few), and they’re proven to help with weight loss, cholesterol levels and improved eye health. Not everyone’s the biggest fan of carrots, though. Don’t worry… we’ve got all the best carrot recipes to slip more into your diet!

For the carrots:

  • 1 pound carrots
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Fresh parsley (for topping)

For the honey mustard dip:

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 1 tablespoons hot sauce

Here’s how to make the most out of your Parmesan cheese.


Step 1: Melt your butter and make your Parmesan mixture

Preheat your oven to 425°F. Place the butter in your casserole dish and set in the preheating oven to melt. Create your Parmesan mixture by combining the Parmesan cheese, salt, oregano, garlic powder and pepper in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.

Step 2: Add your Parmesan and carrots

Take the casserole dish from the oven and add the Parmesan mixture. Add the olive oil and spread evenly until a paste is formed. Wash and trim your carrots. Cut lengthwise down the middle and then into 2-inch sections. Place your carrots over the Parmesan mixture and drizzle olive oil on top. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Step 3: Make your honey mustard

While your carrots are in the oven, add the Greek yogurt, honey mustard and hot sauce into a small bowl and combine well. Set aside.

Step 4: Remove and enjoy

Once your carrots are tender and to your liking, remove them from the oven. Let sit for a few minutes before removing from the casserole dish with a spatula. Top with fresh parsley and serve with dipping sauce.
