Roasted Rainbow Carrots with a Maple Tahini Sauce
Rainbow carrots are not only aesthetically pleasing, but are also my favorite vegetable to roast. I love the flavor that is brought out in carrots once roasted. You can of course make this dish using regular carrots as well. These carrots make the perfect side dish. I also love snacking on them!
This is such an easy dish to make and is so delicious paired with the maple tahini sauce. The sauce was almost too easy to make. I just mixed together some maple syrup, tahini and pink sea salt. Everyone can enjoy this dish as it is vegan and gluten free.
Carrots are a root vegetable with so many health benefits. They are high in beta carotene and fiber. Carrots are also rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate, potassium, iron, copper and manganese. They contribute to beautiful skin, help to prevent cancer and are anti-aging.
