Why I Love Roasted Vegetables

Ok, so if you’ve been around the block with me before you would know that I am absolutely in love with roasted vegetables. I mean seriously, Mustard Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Vegetables, Roasted Tomato Caprese Pasta Roasted Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Hash, and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.  Just to name a few!

Its like when they are in the oven they turn into sweet caramelized goodness! Who doesn’t want to eat that?

Well, if you have guessed it already. Today is another Roasted Vegetable dish, Honey Roasted Carrots to be exact. These were a perfect side to make for the Paleo Diet that we are for the next 3 weeks. But, to be honest I was making this carrot recipe way before this week, Cason loved these when he was a baby. I use to roast them and puree them up. Roasting vegetables is actually my “mom secret” for how to get your kiddos to eat their veggies. When in doubt… roast! 🙂

How to Make the Best Honey Roasted Carrots

To get started, preheat oven to 400º. Peel 2 lbs. of carrots. Cut off stems, cut the carrot in half creating a wide and narrow half. Then cut each half in half lengthwise. {ok, that was alot of “halfs”… whew}
