Welcome to My Kitchen Serenity! These roasted curried carrots are sweet, a little spicy, and full of flavor.  I love this quick and easy recipe. Only five ingredients (the spices you probably already have in your pantry) are needed for a delicious carrot side dish.

 

Roasting vegetables is one of my favorite ways to cook vegetables. When you roast them, it adds richness and delicious flavor.  Vegetables will be crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

These sheet pan roasted vegetables are a perfect side dish for any healthy meal!  Plus, it’s the easiest way to cook a lot of vegetables at the same time.  Just 15 minutes prep time, pop them in the oven, and set the timer for 20-25 minutes.  Easy!

 

Best Vegetables for Roasting

Roasted root vegetables are delicious, however, almost any vegetable can be roasted in the oven.

  • Potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.
  • Broccoli, cauliflower, corn on the cob, brussels sprouts, zucchini, yellow squash, spaghetti squash, etc.
  • Bell peppers, onions, cherry tomatoes, etc.

What is Curry Powder? 

Curry powder has a delightful aroma and the flavor enhances meats, soups, stews, and rice dishes.  It is a blend of spices that commonly consists of cumin, turmeric, coriander, cardamom, and cayenne pepper. However, there are many different homemade curry powder recipes that vary in their ingredients.  Moreover, there are many brands of curry powder; some are mild and some are quite spicy!  So you may want to experiment with different brands to find the one that’s right for you.

Storing Leftovers

Store cooked carrots in airtight containers for up to 3 days.  I like to use BPA-free glass containers with locking lids.  Check out this 18-piece set of glass food storage containers with locking lids.
