Roasted Carrots with Citrus and Garam Masala
One can never have enough ideas for quick vegetables sides, and this one showcases the humble goodness of carrots baked in a tangy citrus and garam masala glaze. As carrots are something I have always have on hand in my crisper because they keep for a few weeks so I don't have to worry about food waste, this simple dish is great when you are pressed for time and are making a dinner with staples you might have on hand. However, this colorful dish shines in its own right, and goes just as well with a more elaborately planned meal as well.
