Oven Roasted Curried Cardamom Carrots – a 4 ingredient weeknight side dish that kicks your carrots up a level!
Sometimes we just need those ultra easy side dishes where all it takes is an ounce of brainpower and a few spices. I don’t normally think fond thoughts about cooked carrots, but spiced and roasted ones are a completely different story. They’re not the mushy tasteless carrots of cafeteria’s past – they’re the cool cousin carrot with little charred bits on the outside and a crazy mix of indian flavor!
I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, just like these little carrot beauties. If you’re looking for suggestions on what to serve these with, I think a nice simple dinner of roast chicken, some sort of brown rice pilaf, a leafy salad, and these Oven Roasted Curried Cardamom Carrots would be just the thing!
