- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons melted extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

MethodHalve carrots lengthwise; cut into 3-inch (8 cm) lengths.
Cut 24-inch (60 cm) length of heavy-duty foil; fold crosswise in half.
Unfold foil; mound carrots and onion on 1 side close to fold. Drizzle with butter; toss with parsley, salt and pepper. Fold foil over; fold in sides and seal to form packet.
