Curry Roasted Baby Carrots

Have you ever purchased a vegetable because it looked so gosh darn cute? Yes, I said cute in reference to vegetables.

This time of year, baby carrots are taking center stage at farmers' markets, and I couldn’t be more smitten with these miniature carrots. Rich in the antioxidant beta-carotene and eye-health-boosting vitamin A, carrots are a nutritious, delicious (and quite adorable) choice to add to your dinner menu this summer.

These carrots are delicious roasted in the oven with your favorite herbs and spices. Kick them up a notch with a one-two punch of curry powder and cinnamon.
