Side Dish: Fennel Roasted Carrots

Recipe Rundown
Taste: Refreshingly sweet.
Texture: My carrots ended up being more crunchy then I would have liked so I edited to recipe to chop the carrot pieces small so they cook more thoroughly and quickly. I would recommend trying this recipe with baby carrots.

Ease: Super quick and easy and if you follow my baby carrot recommendation, even easier. Perfect for a weeknight side or when your main dish requires all your attention.
Appearance: These bright orange carrots look delectable chopped diagonally with specks of vibrant green parsley.
Pros: Simple, fast, healthy.
Cons: Mine were a bit undercooked.
Would I make this again? Yes, but I’ll try it with baby carrots (easier and sweeter).

    Love the idea of roasted carrots instead of simply boiling or steaming them.
