Roasted Spiced Carrots are my latest attempt at getting Big to eat more vegetables! This one worked!
Do you have a family member who snubs their nose at all vegetables? I am lucky, I only have one of those family members – my daughter is a lover of all vegetables and fruits. She loves them any time of the day.
These carrots have a great sweet and spicy taste to them. The sweet comes from the carrots themselves and the spicy flavor comes from the chili powder and cayenne.
They are not to spicy for your little ones though! If you are concerned about the amount of heat in the recipe, simply omit the cayenne pepper.
