How many of you have tried rainbow carrots before? I LOVE them! There's just something exciting about eating carrots that are other colors besides orange! It may just be the dorky foodie in me, but they are so fun! I bought some at Trader Joes, and most recently received a bag of them in my fruit and vegetable basket from Bountiful Baskets! If you haven't heard of Bountiful Baskets, you should really check out their website and see if they have pick up sites in your area! You pay a basket contribution fee and on pick up day, you receive your basket with 50% fruits and 50% veggies! It's so awesome!


The recipe I created with the rainbow carrots is full of flavor and is total comfort food! I just love oven roasted veggies and my daughter loves them even more than I do! It's one of our favorite go to sides to serve with chicken, fish or even steak! The honey adds a touch of sweetness and almost caramelizes on the veggies while they're roasting! Totally delicious and so simple! You can also add any other veggies you have on hand and make a larger batch! The leftovers are tasty too! Enjoy!
