What’s the Big Dill with These Carrots?
Adding fresh Dill really amps up the flavor of this side dish and a lemon infused olive oil gives them a citrus kick! My favorite brand is Enzo’s Organic Lemon Infused Olive oil. Roasted Dill Carrots are slightly sweet and they pair well with filet mignon, chicken or quinoa.
Don’t have any fresh dill? You can also roast these with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing (2 parts olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinaigrette). Or try using regular olive oil and squeeze fresh lemon and lemon zest on them if you don’t have a lemon infused olive oil.
To really add more flavor, you can dip them in Sir Kensington’s Special Sauce – it’s oh so good together!
Did you know carrots come in multiple colors? The picture features rainbow carrots – beautiful colors of purple, orange, and yellow. They taste the same as orange carrots, but have different antioxidants that make up their colors. I like to buy these when Whole Foods has them to get a good variety of antioxidants in one dish.
I recommend cooking these on a piece of parchment paper to avoid the sugars from the carrots sticking to your baking sheet.
