roasted carrots

Ok, you caught me.  I have this weird thing with carrots.  I love raw carrots and could eat them without any dip, no problem.  But cooked carrots?  I have no idea why but unless they’re drenched in the juices of the crockpot chicken or hidden in a stew or soup I just don’t care for them.  Don’t tell the hubs I admitted this.  I’ll never live it down.

Luckily, with this recipe my secret is safe!  Who know that adding a simple healthy fat and just a couple simple spices you likely have in your cabinet would turn carrots into a decadent side dish!  It’s so simple it almost feels like cheating.
