Total time: 
Serves: serves 4
  • 8 carrots, peeled and cut on a diagonal into ¼-inch slices
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  1. Preheat the grill to its medium setting or prepare charcoals for grilling.
  2. On a large sheet of aluminum foil, pile the carrot slices. Top with garlic and mince gently to combine. Drizzle with Pompeian olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then, pull the opposite ends of the foil together, pressing to seal. Do this for both sets of edges, so you form a sealed foil packet.
  3. Place on the grill and let cook, undisturbed, for about 25 minutes. Carefully remove from the grill and open (caution!! It will be hot and steam can burn you).
  4. Transfer the carrots to a serving dish and top with basil.
  5. Enjoy immediately. These are also delicious served chilled.
