Carrots are typically chopped up or shredded and thrown into salads, but when was the last time you just satueed some carrots by themselves as a colorful, delicious side dish for dinner? Just adding a little sea salt and pepper for taste, the sweetness of the carrots will come out during the sautee and they flavor themselves. Or, if you’re looking to get a little more creative, try adding a cinnamon-balsamic glaze:

Cinnamon-Balsamic Glazed Carrots

– pre-heat oven to 450F
– 1 lb whole carrots, ends and tips trimmed
– peel the carrots and slice in half length-wise
– stir 2 tbsp Olive Oil, 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– pour over carrots in a mixing bowl, toss to coat
– arrange carrots on a baking tray without touching each other
– roast at 450 F for 20 minutes, flat side down
– flip carrots, roast for 7-10 more minutes
– carrots are done when showing caramelization and can easily be pierced with a fork
