Pouch Baked Carrots

I was reading my new Jamie Oliver Cookbook, Jamie’s Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals [1], when a recipe for Baked Carrots in a Bag caught my eye. I knew my kid would be all about cooking something in a bag! Jamie’s recipe looked tasty, but it included bacon (my veggie husband will not eat) and some other things I didn’t have in the house. But I did use his recipe as inspiration to come up with my own.

I showed my kid the picture of the aluminum foil bag and before we even started making this my kid started running around the house shouting “we’re making carrot pouches!” He munched on raw carrots as we pulled together the ingredients and kept peaking in the oven once they were baking. Everything about this recipe was a hit including the finished product. Now for the recipe…

Pouch Baked Carrot Recipe

Prep Time: 10 mins  Cooking Time: 45 mins

8 large carrots (peeled)
1/2 large shallot (diced small)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 medium navel orange
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut carrots into chunky pieces on the diagonal. (Do not slice too thin!) In a large bowl toss the carrots and shallots with olive oil until coated. Add the honey and juice from the orange. Zest the orange over the mixture and salt and pepper to taste. Lay a 2 foot long piece of aluminum foil on the table. Place carrot mixture on one half of the foil and fold the other half up over the carrots. Crimp the sides and then close it up in front to form a pocket, then close the pocket to form a pouch. Place on a cookie sheet in the oven. Check occasionally to make sure no juice is escaping from  your pouch. If it is, re-crimp the sides. Bake for 45 minute or until tender. Serves 4 to 6.
