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.
