Roasted Sweet Carrots

carrotsI made this side dish on Easter, and it was so colorful and delicious that I know I will make it again (and I won’t wait an entire year). It always amazes me that the simplest things can be so yummy.

The Ingredients:

  • 1 pound large carrots, peeled and cut into angles
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  •  2 teaspoons chives, minced
The Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients and spread out on a cookie sheet.
  3. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until tender.
When I made this, I prepped and combined all the ingredients about 6 hours early and kept them in a plastic bag in the fridge until I was ready to cook.
