Spiced Roasted Carrots


I made these Spiced Roasted Carrots and let me tell you, they were the BEST carrots I have ever tasted! The wonderful flavor of the spices were delicious but what set this aside from all other carrot recipes is the red wine vinegar! Not a lot, just enough to meld all of the flavors together…… so good! This makes a great side dish for every day meals or to impress your guests! Very tasty and easy to make.

  1. Those look amazing, Diane! Thanks for sharing. I need to pick up a couple of flavored vinegars to keep on hand. There’s a lot of recipes that call for red wine or Balsamic vinegar. I don’t think vinegar goes bad, if i don’t use it up quick enough.

      • What about some feedback on your spiced roasted carrots, Diane?
        I made them with my chicken dish for dinner yesterday, and as you wrote, they tasted really delicious. For some strange reason though, I almost always have to add my own twist whenever I try a new recipe. This time I added a minced clove of garlic and a fistful of finely chopped parsley to the melted butter before spooning it over the carrots (like the icing on the cake, haha…). 🙂
        I have now saved the recipe and will absolutely make it again. 🙂

  2. Really look tasty and in India i have never seen any dish like this..i will definitely cook and eat someday
