Root vegetables are great roasted. I could eat them every day of the week, and in the winter time, my family eats a lot of roasted veggies.
This recipe has a different flavor than just the usual salt and pepper, and it’s low in fat and high in taste. Mustard seed adds a zing to all the ingredients and combines them nicely.
When the carrots are roasted, they stay nice and sweet. We always fight over the slightly burnt ones – my son usually wins!
