Roasted Rainbow Carrots
Many of our favorite recipes are shockingly simple, like these maple-dijon roasted rainbow carrots. These are so quick and easy to make, equally perfect for a weeknight dinner or for a big family Easter lunch. Everyone loves the rainbow colors, which really make this recipe special. The maple and Dijon flavors are light, making these a crowd pleaser with both kids and grown-up guests. Looking for something a little fancier? This roasted carrot, avocado and toasted quinoa salad is another one of my recipes, and a personal favorite. Happy Easter! xxLauren
