I love roasted vegetables. Over the past few weeks I’ve been making a huge batch every Sunday to eat for lunch throughout the week. I was ready to switch things up a little so I decided to make these sweet and savory roasted carrots this week. This recipe is great because it’s easy, only requires a few ingredients and tastes great. And, it’s the best recipe for feeding a large crowd or if you want quick lunches for the week.
The name alone should make your mouth water. Carrots roasted in a sweet, buttery sauce – YUM! Can you really go wrong with any recipe that only calls for 5 ingredients?
This is a great everyday recipe that anyone can make and doesn’t require any cooking experience. If you can peel carrots, you can make these roasted carrots and they’re the perfect side dish for any meal. Your family will be amazed at how great these carrots taste.
And guess what? I’ve made this recipe even better by using Truvia Spoonable. My goal for 2016 is to eat more clean recipes. I’ve been including simple recipes that I can make ahead of time and eat during the week so I’m not constantly snacking on junk food when I get hungry.
Truvia Natural Sweetener is helping me cut back on the amount of sugar I use in my coffee and recipes which is helping lower my daily calorie intake. Truvia Natural Sweetener is a zero-calorie, stevia-based sweetener. One packet of Truvia Natural Sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
I picked up my Truvia Spoonable while shopping at Walmart in the baking aisle.
I’ve also made a similar recipe but instead of carrots, I use sweet potatoes. Add a little pecans and you have another delicious recipe. Once you try these roasted sweet potatoes, you won’t want to stop eating them. This is another simple recipe that can be made ahead of time and great for leftovers throughout the week.
