The Overlooked Carrot
The poor carrot. The bright orange root vegetable that we always have on hand in our refrigerators is usually relegated to a crudités platter or being tossed into the start of a recipe as one component of mirepoix (onions, carrots and celery). The carrot rarely is given the opportunity to shine on its own. This recipe for balsamic glazed roasted carrots, however, puts the carrot front and center, points a spotlight on this sweet colorful vegetable and really lets it stand alone at center stage. Isn’t it time we gave carrots its due?
