Honey Rosemary Roasted Carrots

I have carrots for you today. Carrots. But they are special carrots….

I picked these bad boys up from the Farmer’s Market the other day and couldn’t get over how oddly creepy yet beautiful they looked.

Rainbow carrots, they are called.

And they were even prettier once I did a little makeover to them. All nicely washed, peeled, and chopped. Much better:

I love finding new vegetable recipes that I love. Because what’s better than eating vegetables that you know are super healthy that are also really delicious?

I added some Olive Oil, a drizzle of honey, S&P, and chopped rosemary to the carrots and stuck them in the oven for about 30 minutes.

That’s all. Just some perfectly sweet, beautiful, healthy carrots.

I’ve already enjoyed them two ways. I can’t get enough of them!

Once with fish and brown rice:

And another as an addition to a brown rice “taco bowl”:

Mmm…. I hope you like these as much as I do. They’re great to store in your fridge all week to add to salads, or as a side to your lunch/dinner. Even add them to omelettes in the morning for breakfast. Or just snack on them with a little feta? Possibilities are endless!

  1. YUM!! We got rainbow carrots in our CSA bag last week and they were so beautiful and so tasty! I wish I’d seen this recipe in time, but we got “regular” carrots this week so I think I can still make it work. 😉

  2. Wow, just beautiful – gorgeous images Jamie! I have a packet of a ‘rainbow’ selection of heritage carrot seed in my seed box, definitely got to sow them!

  3. this would be such a great dish to bring as a side dish to a dinner party!! sounds amazing. i hope i can find these at my local farmers market!
