I’ve had week of eating out, trying all the wonderful rich foods and now I’m just craving vegetables! Genuinely, I just want a bowl of carrots, ideally beautifully roasted and with walnuts for a little crunch.
I picked up some beautiful baby carrots at the farmers market and was blown away by how naturally sweet they were! They also roasted up incredibly well and were tender in less than 30 minutes.
I love adding a little honey to enhance that natural sweetness and make them a little more glossy and alluring. A sure fire way to win even kids over with veggies. A little honey goes a long way.
