Balsamic Roasted Carrots

DSC_0988

Have you ever seen/eaten purple carrots? Aren’t they just the most beautiful vegetables you’ve ever seen? Especially once you slice them open 🙂

We decided to roast them with some balsamic vinegar for a easy side dish. Carrots are so lovely and sweet when roasted, and the balsamic vinegar balances them out beautifully.  This side dish takes a little while to cook, but the active/hands-on time is minimal. People will think you worked a lot harder on them than you did! Furthermore, you’ll likely have all of the ingredients at home, making it easy to throw this together anytime.
