Lemon Rosemary Carrots



I've been trying to find new ways to use rosemary as we have an enormous bush of it in our garden ! The other night I had 1/2 a cauliflower, decided to roast it but needed another veg as that wouldn't have been enough. I had carrots so went with that. I just threw them in a baking dish (with baking paper on the bottom, of course !), squeezed the juice of 1/2 a lemon on them, added a bit of olive oil, a few cloves of sliced garlic and then heaps of fresh rosemary. Unchopped. Just pulled off the branch ! Baked for probably 15/20 minutes. And it was soooo tasty ! I'll be doing carrots like this more often ! Much more often !!

Sounds yummy! We've been roasting carrots every week on one of the diet nights. We just cut them into spears and lay them on a lightly olive oiled cooking sheet. Very yummy way to eat carrots!

have you ever tried roasting raw beet ? my father in law loves it.

No...we always boil them...but the diet calls for LOTS of beets, so we should try roasting them. Although they aren't really in season at the moment, so rather expensive. How exactly do you prepare them roasted? Do you peel them like carrots?

Bonnie said...

yep, peel them. and then roast them just like you told me you do the carrots ...
