Jaggery Glazed Roasted Carrots

The bright orange vegetable, every child’s favorite. Fresh carrots can be available in the markets around the season. Naturally sweet and crunchy, carrots are notably rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and dietary fiber and a healthy addition you can make to the vegetable list of your diet. They are an exceptionally rich source of carroteness and vitamin-A.

 

You can tell that I like my vegetables roasted. Whenever I introduce a new vegetable to my family, I like to serve it roasted. Roasting the vegetables in the oven gives them a caramelized exterior and flavor while keeping the inside moist and tender.

Ingredients

1 ½ pounds baby carrots

1 tablespoon olive oil

Coarse salt

½ tsp ground pepper

1 tablespoon melted jaggery

1 tsp chopped chives

 

Directions:

1 Pre-heat oven to 450 F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss carrots with oil; season with salt and pepper.

2 Roast, tossing once, until tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven, and toss with jaggery. Sprinkle chives for garnish.
