Paprika Roasted Rainbow Carrots

As the days get shorter and the nights a little chillier, I find myself reaching for dinners that are warm and comforting for Fall nights at home. Seasoned with just a little olive oil and a sprinkle of spices, these carrots’ natural sweetness really shine in this side dish. This is also a great place to start if you’re looking to get a little more adventurous with your roasted carrots— add a touch of honey, cinnamon or coconut sugar to make a sweet glaze. I added a sprinkle of fresh thyme at the end for an herb-y and fresh flavor!

    I ❤️ roasted veggies. But, I don’t care for rainbow carrots. The taste. Weird.
    And yes, just as you do.
