Honey Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

I’ve always hated carrots.

But the tables are turning. Hey, it’s a new year anyway!

Yes, this is yet another roasted vegetable “recipe”. Maybe my obsession with roasting centers around the fact that it’s new to me? I didn’t grow up eating roasted vegetables, we usually had canned or steamed veg with dinner.

I’m experiencing vegetables in a whole new way now. Roasting adds an exciting element and brings out the complex flavors of food, especially vegetables! It’s like an tasty explosion of flavor!

Give roasting a try!

Wondering, are you a fan of the carrot? If so, how do you eat them?
