Roasted Baby Carrots
To add more vegetables to your diet, try roasting them. Roasting vegetables has become our new favorite way to enjoy our vegetables. All vegetables benefit from spending some time in the oven including baby carrots. For a fast and quick side dish, purchase a bag of baby carrots, throw them on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with a seasoning blend and roast. Roasted Baby Carrots are Simple. Fast. Easy. Delicious.
Gourmet or Heirloom
To make this super simple dish even better, pick up a selection of gourmet or heirloom carrots. Heirloom carrots can be found in some grocery store produce departments, usually in the specialty area. You can also find heirloom carrots at Farmers Markets, Roadside Produce Stands or at your favorite Farm Stand. Heirloom carrots come in different colors and are many times longer and thinner than regular carrots.
For this recipe we used Bolthouse Farms Baby Carrots. Baby carrots are most often used as a snack with vegetable or dill dip. There are so n many different ways y to prepare baby carrots. Add them too soups, stews and casseroles. In my humble culinary opinion, “Baby” carrots were start of the baby vegetable craze. In fact, baby carrots have been the reigned Queen for a long time now.
