Roasted Carrot Sticks

Roasted Carrot Sticks recipe marissabaker.wordpress.comI found this recipe described as “The Best Way to Cook Zucchini and Carrots” on a blog called Voracious Veggie. I haven’t had a zucchini yet to try it on, but my whole family agrees this is the best way to eat cooked carrots. I make the “Asian seasoned” ones as a side dish every time we have Korean Beef, and they also go well with my Thai-Peanut Chicken if the carrots in the sauce aren’t enough vegetable for you. You can vary the spices to match just about anything, so they are versatile as well as easy to make.

Seasonings
I vary the spices I use depending on what I’m cooking with the carrots. Ideas include paprika, cumin, cayenne, crushed red peppers, thyme, rosemary, sage, or a premixed spice blend.
