Cumin roastedĀ carrots

October 7, 2013


Author Notes: I make this recipe for dinner parties because it is foolproof and beautiful. It was inspired by ABC Kitchen's carrot and avocado salad, which I found to be delicious but too much work for a busy dinner party prep period. Whole carrots are easy to come by year-round, whether it's beautiful tri-colored carrots with stems or just whole orange ones from the bag. Roast them up, arrange them on a nice platter, and you're set to go.PalateGal
