Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts

My husband brought home 5 pounds of baby carrots from our weekly farm pick-up. Can you visualize home many carrots are in a 5 pound bag? It’s a lot of carrots. We love carrots, raw and cooked, but there was no way our family could consume all of these raw. We needed an easy recipe to cook up a bunch of these. Enter, roasting! Always a simple way to cook a large quantity of fresh veggies, and bring out their natural sweetness and flavor. Neither of my children complained about having to finish these veggies on their dinner plate. A sprinkling of kosher salt complements the natural sweetness of the carrots, and with the brussels, they make a lovely pair.

Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts

A simple and beautiful vegan side dish. Kosher salt complements the natural sweetness of the carrots; freshly ground black pepper and red pepper flakes add a hint of spice; and Brussels sprouts are lovely paired with the colorful carrots. Using avocado oil creates nicely crisped veggies.
