Zesty Carrots Recipe

Let’s add some zest to carrots!

Carrots can be a versatile and very healthy side dish for almost any meal, and they get perfectly tender when roasted over the grill.  A simple trick is to coat in olive oil, then place in a roasting pan, baking sheet or aluminum tray over your grill.  Season generously and rotate every 5 minutes or so for about 20 minutes on a grill heated to 400 F.  

As for slicing… feel free to cut them up any way you like.  Personally, I don’t care to do much prep for my carrots, so I usually slice the thicker ones lengthwise only to speed up the cooking time.  

Slice up 10 large carrots lengthwise and toss in a large bowl with 1/2 cup olive oil with 1/2 cup agave.  Roast on a baking sheet until tender, about 15-20 minutes at 400F, then remove and season lightly with dark chili powder, juice of one lime, and the zest of the lime’s rind (hint: do the zesting before you juice!).  

Give it a try and let us know if you like our family recipe as much as we do in our house!
