A Girl & Her Food: Roasted Carrots

Roasted Carrots

Over the weekend, I shopped Logan Square's indoor Farmers' Market.  Iron Creek Farm had the most beautiful organic red-orange colored carrots.  Speaking of... Did you know that carrots can be grown in a variety of colors, including purple, yellow, white and even black?!  When you are preparing your farm fresh carrots, whether you are plan on cooking them or eating them raw, DON'T PEEL the skin!  Just scrub the skin clean.   With carrots, like many vegetables, the most nutritional value is just below the skin.   They can be a great source of carotene and are low in calories.  The recipe I am going to share with you calls for three simple ingredients: olive oil, salt and pepper. You don't need much to make a stellar  roasted carrot side dish.  I had my roasted carrots as a mid-day winter snack! 








ingredients 

1 bunch of Iron Creek Farm organic carrots
Olive Oil 
Kosher Salt 
Black ground pepper

preparation 
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Toss the carrots with olive oil, salt, and pepper in a baking dish. Roast at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
