Day 280: Curry'd carrots
In an effort to "veg up" my dinners, I once again turned to my favorite vegetable. These roasted curried carrots were so easy to put together, and so delicious! I honestly could snack on these instead of popcorn or chips when I get the midnight munchies.
I took 4 carrots, peeled them, and sliced them. Next, I coated them with olive oil, sea salt and fresh black pepper. Then, I lightly sprinkled some curry powder. (Note that this is the generic curry powder that you get in the spice aisle!) After that I lined a toaster oven pan with foil, poured the carrot mixture and spread out all the carrot pieces so that they were laid out.* I have a Breville toaster oven which I just love to use to easily roast or broil veggies. For these carrots, I set it at broil on the top shelf at a temperature of 400 degrees fahrenheit. After about 15 minutes, I was left with awesomely roasted carrots that were so soft and tasty that even my teething 18-month approved.
*On a side note, don't you just love the color of carrots? The hue is such a deep and rich orange that you can taste the curry even before putting it in your mouth!
