In addition to the tzimmies that I featured on WMUR’s Cook’s Corner today was simple maple roasted carrots. I roast a ton of carrots at a time – they’re great to eat as is but also serve as the base to my roasted carrot and cumin soup, roasted carrot tart, carrot vinaigrette and roasted carrot farro risotto.
