summertime roasting

so sweet

Having a delicious side dish that’s also incredibly easy is the best thing to have in your recipe arsenal. Among the long list of things Alex won’t eat, cooked carrots is nearing the top of the list. I, however, love them.

Roasting carrots is one of the best ways to eat them. They very easy to prep and roasting them really highlights their natural sweetness. The addition of cumin lends them a little savory quality to go with their natural sweetness. This particular crop of carrots was so incredibly sweet that I couldn’t stop eating them. Luckily, the whole batch was mine.

    I don’t particularly like carrots, but I must say, these are making my mouth water.
