Turmeric Roasted Carrots Recipe




Turmeric Roasted Carrots Recipe

One of our family’s favorite things to grow on our farm is carrots.  Carrots that you pick from your garden are always sweeter! We love them roasted! This turmeric roasted carrots recipe is a simple side dish that wins every time!

A recipe for everyone

Whole roasted carrots prepared the Mediterranean way–with extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, garlic, and spices like turmeric and coriander. Vegan and Gluten free!

Simple but delicious

Today’s roasted carrots recipe challenges everything we know about cooking carrots. No slicing. No cutting into pieces. No boiling. We’re going for whole roasted carrots, which make a wonderful statement on the dinner table (especially the colorful variety) with half the effort!

When roasted, the warmth and sweetness of carrots comes through nicely.  A little oil of sorts plus a pinch of salt and pepper may be all you need.

My oil of choice here is obviously extra virgin olive oil, which will help our bodies absorb more of the vitamin A from the carrots.

Added health benefit

To add flavor and kick up the health benefits, I chose to toss the carrots in some ground turmeric and coriander. I finish my roasted carrots up with a squeeze of lime juice and fresh chopped herbs which brightens everything right up.
