Thyme Roasted Carrots

I just got a spice canister of dried Thyme and the first thing I decided to make with it was roasted carrots. This dish is easy, flavorful, healthy, and adds a ton of color to your plate! See picture of carrots with pecan crusted salmon and edamame mash:
Thyme Roasted Carrots

Whole carrots, sliced into quarters
Olive oil
Fresh ground pepper
Dried thyme
Chives, sliced for garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Spread the carrots on a baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil and generously sprinkle with ground pepper and thyme. Gently toss on the pan to evenly coat.
3. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, when carrots are starting to get a golden hue and the thyme is starting to crisp. Sprinkle with chives and serve warm.
