A quick and easy side!

Carrots are a wonderful vegetable and perfect for fall. They are fairly cheap and high in nutrients such as beta carotene. There are many ways to prepare these delightful veggies. My favorite herb with carrots is dill. It is a classic combination. Dill brings out the sweetness of the carrots and gives a great contrasting flavor. So if you want a quick and easy vegetable side, this is the way to go.

Roasted Rainbow Dill Carrots

Serves: 2-4           Cook Time: 20 min        Prep Time: 5 min

  • 1 1/2 pounds rainbow carrots, peeled and sliced on a bias
  • Olive oil to coat
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh dill, chopped


Heat oven to to 425F. Toss carrots in olive oil,salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan in a single layer. Cook 15-20 minutes or until fork tender. Once out of the oven toss with chopped dill. Enjoy. If you do not like dill, mint or parsley could be substituted. This is a great way to get your veggies. Enjoy as a side with a variety of dishes!
