Roasted carrots!

Hey all,

Now that fall is upon us, I’ve been trying to make more fall dishes. Here’s an easy and quick side dish that I made this week to go along with our beer butt chicken. I picked up these beautiful multi-coloured carrots from our local grocery store. Talk about an inexpensive side ;).

First, I peeled the carrots and cut off their tips. Then I cut them in half and lined them up for a nice picture lol


I usually make our roasted carrots with maple syrup because, why not, but I decided to try something different. This time I tossed my peeled and cut carrots in a bowl with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper. Warning: the aroma from simply tossing these few ingredients together is awesome!


I then lined them up on my silpat lined baking sheet and roasted them in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. The end result was fabulous!


These guys were so flavourful, even the kids enjoyed them. Ok, they may not have loved them 😉 but our son ate a few so that was a small parent win especially since getting him to eat a vegetable other than avocado, potatoes or soups with vegetables seems like an impossible task.

So, if you’re looking to try something new with your carrots why don’t you give this recipe a try and please let me know what you think. It’s quick, easy and super delicious.

What kinds of fall sides have you been making lately?

Talk soon,
