My kids can be pretty picky eaters, but they can’t get enough carrots. My husband is also a fan, so it’s a win win veggie at our home.
Which is great for me because they are healthy, great for their bodies, extremely inexpensive, and incredibly easy to make. Especially this Ranch Roasted Carrots recipes.
These carrots are one of our family’s favorite side dishes.
They seriously take minutes to throw together, and are so yummy. This is one of the only ways I can eat vegetables. They are so delicious, and incredibly easy.
could i make this recipe with a different dressing mix?
For this recipe, we used a ranch dressing mix, however, you could easily use another dressing mix that you prefer.
Italian Dressing Mix, or really any dressing mix that you like or prefer, would work with this recipe. We still recommend using the same amount, as directed in the instructions, but another flavor or dressing seasoning mix, would work great.
what other dressing would be good with the ranch seasoning mix?
I am a total ranch seasoning mix fan. I could honestly be their mascot. It tastes delicious on just about everything, including other vegetables. Here are a few other veggies that I love it on:
- Red Potatoes
- Sweet Potatoes
- Russet Potatoes or Mashed Potatoes
- Bell Peppers
- Yellow Squash
- Green Beans
could i make this recipe using ranch dressing?
For this recipe, we use ranch dressing mix. We do not recommend using actual ranch dressing. The texture will completely ruin the carrots, and will also be difficult to spread to all the carrots.
The mix, is just a seasoning, which can be easily sprinkled over the carrots, giving them equal coverage. The other ingredients in the ranch dressing will make for a weird texture, and possibly even taste.
For this recipe, we highly recommend just using the ranch seasoning mix, not actual ranch dressing.
