Roasted Carrots with Dijon Dressing

IMG_6271Serves 4 as a side

This recipe can also include golden and red baby beets as well as a red onion, cut in wedges. The mix of the vegetables taste delicious but the carrots on their own are just as good. We served it with marinated feta that is made from feta, sun-dried tomatoes, kaffir-lime leaves and a little organic lemon peel. Divine.

1 lb carrots
3 Tbsp olive oil
