Roasted Carrots

 DF, V, VG, GF

When you make any meal there should always be one star of the show.  The star can be the main dish or it could be a side item.  Either way you can’t have two powerful full flavors on one plate.  You lose the cohesiveness needed for any good meal.  So while this dish isn’t what I would call a star, it compliments many quite well.  Simple, yet spicy and perfect alongside just about anything.
