Bored with simple veggies and want to bring on the fancy?
As you may know I’m a super fan of veggies, but I gotta get creative from time to time with how I eat them or yes…healthy eating can be very bland and boring.
So I got super inspired when my eyes fixated on the recipe for these Honey-Roasted Carrots and Beets. This recipe had me at the words honey-roasted.
Just sayin’ my taste buds were saying, “Um, yes please” when I was watching the cooking show from my streaming service for health, fitness and recipes.
Were they good?
Hubs and I so enjoyed the healthy sweetness of these colorful carrots and beets.
So you know I had to share this recipe with you! It’s simple to make, great for a tight budget, and you’ll have convenient leftovers.
