Aromatic Roasted Carrots

I love roasting veggies, don’t you? All the wonderful flavours seem to deepen and sweeten and become more pronounced. I often cut up a bunch of veggies, toss with a little olive oil or coconut oil and roast ’em up. My family enjoys them right out of the oven without any fanfare, “solo” or as a part of the meal.  These days, I find myself experimenting a little, and this quick post, is a little recipe which has fast become a ‘must make’ at home!
Aromatic roasted carrots? Yes please. Try these. Let them become your own new.. best treat!
