Sharon Palmer

The next time you get a bunch of tender small carrots with tops, make this easy four ingredient recipe (not including pantry staples) and you will return to it time and time again. It’s perfect for everything from holiday meals to brunch to an easy meal during the week. Filled with the flavors of zesty orange, and sweet-spicy ginger, the texture of these Roasted Orange Ginger Carrots amaze every time.

Pick out small tender carrots of any color, such as these I found at the farmers market.
Trim to about 1/2-inch of tops. Scrub well with a vegetable brush.
I used oranges from my small orchard. Just use the zest and juice from one medium fresh orange.
