I used to hate cooked carrots. I thought they were disgusting (I’m thinking the pot roast, mushy kind here).
About 2 years ago, when Seth was out at sea for extended periods of time, I went on a little vegetable roasting binge, roasting anything and everything I had, at any given moment. One of the random roasts was baby carrots, with a little oil, kosher salt/pepp, because carrots were the only vegetable I had left that week. They were to-die-for! They quickly became my go-to vegetable dish on a weeknight, because it takes very little time or effort.
Then on a whim, I decided to make them the same way, but sprinkle with cinnamon…EEEEKKK! So good. I’ve made them for several friends and my mom, and each time, everyone raves about them. 5 simple ingredients, plus they help your peepers!
Cinnamon Roasted Carrots
- Carrots (baby, cut large, whatever)
- Oil of your choice
- Kosher salt
Carrots are not as spongy as other vegetables, so it takes very little oil. Sprinkle with the spices, toss and then roast at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, or until they get to your preferred done-ness.
