Roasted Rainbow Carrots – A quick and easy side dish great for the holidays or as a part of a weeknight meal. These gorgeous carrots are sure to be a hit.
Roasted Rainbow Carrots
Rainbow carrots have been one of my favorite finds of the past few years. Whenever I am at the grocery store getting carrots and they have any rainbow carrots, I always go for them because of how beautiful they look. I think they really make any dish look more elegant even though they are simply prettier carrots.
Now this recipe is great for the holidays as a side dish or even just for a normal weeknight meal. You can jazz up the spices if you would like, I kept them pretty simple for this recipe. Sometimes I whip up a honey thyme glaze for them or add balsamic but really, they taste so good with simple spices that I normally just stick with that.
