Oven Roasted Ranch Carrots Recipe

Using ranch is such an easy way to add a bit of flare and extra flavor to your dishes.  A delicious change up of your every day carrot side dish. What helps make these carrots so easy? Usually for most meals the oven going already, therefore popping the carrots onto a sheet pan with some seasonings and oil is basically all there is to it. 

What is Ranch Dressing Made Of?

If you ask my daughter what ranch dressing is made of she will tell you- from the powder packet. Even she recognizes the versatility of these handy little packets.  The ranch packet makes a great rub for chicken, compound butter for beef, flavored mashed potatoes and of course, carrots. 

Sometimes it is just nice to make a homemade version. Traditionally ranch is made of buttermilk an array of spices like garlic, onion, paprika and a whole bunch of herbs. This is the reason a lot of people use the packet.  It is just easier.  However,  we can vouch for the fact that nothing beats a homemade ranch dressing. If you have the ambition to whip up a batch we recommend it!

Skip heating homemade ranch

For recipes like these oven roasted ranch carrots, using homemade ranch dressing isn't recommended.  The carrots will turn out too greasy. Ranch dressing does some funny thing when heated. It does make an AMAZING marinade for chicken though!  Instead, it is best to use the dry seasoning packet OR mix up your own homemade ranch and only use the dry seasonings.
