Roasted Citrus Carrots

Making tasty veggies is something I love to do. I usually get stuck eating the same vegetables on repeat. To keep this from happening, I have to come up with new vegetable recipes for the blog. These citrus roasted carrots are easy and so flavorful. The carrots are roasted, and a citrus glaze is made on the stovetop by reducing orange juice with spices.

These carrots are tossed in a cinnamon citrus glaze after being roasted. They are Whole30 and Paleo compatible.
