Notes

If you want to have very soft roasted carrots, then be sure to cover the roasting pan with foil paper while in the oven for about 20 minutes before removing the foil paper and further roasting the carrots for another 10 minutes. Covering the roasted carrots ensures no moisture escapes while baking in the oven; removing it afterward and roasting the carrots for another 10 minutes ensures you have caramelized edges.
