Easy and pretty oven roasted carrots for your busy weeknight dinner. Colorful, tasty and so simple to make so dinner is on the table fast.
Just because they are carrots does not mean they have to be a boring side dish. Use crinkle cut pre-sliced carrots like I did and serve it in a uniquely shaped white serving bowl and you have “fancy-schmancy” on a typical weeknight.
Ever since I’ve been a kid I’ve been a carrot fan. Most kids I knew hated them and I didn’t understand why. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned of the many health benefits of these orange goodies and now I know why mom kept pushing them on us.
I thought oven roasted carrots instead of sautéed or steamed would be perfect. In fact, it was even easier than I thought. Just add your favorite seasoning and your side dish is ready quick.
