Roasted Fennel & Carrots

Roasted Fennel & Carrots

Who says oven roasted vegetables are only for fall? We think spring is the perfect time of year of year to enjoy our new garden veggies. Being from California, when we think spring we think asparagus and artichokes. Let’s not forget the basics, carrots. Nothing taste better than a fresh spring carrot, is crisp and flavorful. During the spring time we also love fennel, it’s refreshing and aromatic. Fennel brings joy to our taste buds by using our senses. 

Why we love roasting veggies:

  1. Easy prep
  2. Easy clean up
  3. Brings out delicious flavors that rich and warm

This recipe doesn’t call for Parmesan cheese but you can add Parmesan cheese before roasting like in this recipe from food network. We also, love adding fennel to a fresh salad.
