Coated Carrots

IMG_1644 IMG_1646 IMG_1648 IMG_1650

Warm vegetables just seem to taste nicer.

Even nicer is being able to use the same template, yet change up its flavour every time to crush boredom. Coating carrots (or a variety of vegetables) with a mixture of different herbs and spices, eating carrots every night as a side dish stops being monotonous. Basically, helping to keep vegetables interesting!

Makes 4 servings

Some ideas found on the recipe’s original web site include:

  • Smoked paprika
  • Red chili flakes
  • Cumin and paprika
  • Garlic powder with either thyme or rosemary
  • Ready-made salt-free blends
  • Black pepper

So try new mixtures and herbs to keep vegetables on your plate (and eventually in your stomach).

Ingredients:

  • 8 medium carrots, peeled and sliced 4-inches in length
  • Olive oil
  • Your herb/spice mixture: (smoked) paprika, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon (on carrots is lovely), nutmeg, Mrs. Dash, tumeric, cardamom, ground ginger, rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano, etc.

How to:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, toss carrots with olive oil and spice/herb of choice. Once coated, place and spread out carrots on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake for another 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool prior to serving.

Make it a meal:

  • A nice addition to roast turkey, yams, and a spinach salad.
