Ingredients

  • 1 bunch carrots (about 12oz/375 g)
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons melted extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)

Method

Halve 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.

Place on grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, turning once, until tender-crisp, about 12 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes before opening. To serve, shake gently to distribute seasonings. Drizzle with lemon juice (if using).
