I love vegetables, especially Carrots. This is a vegetable that is healthy and so versatile. You can eat it raw, in your soups and stews, or one of my favorite ways, adding it to my morning juice. Another amazing way to enjoy carrots is by roasting them.

if you don’t know about Farmbox Direct, this is a company that delivers fresh fruits and vegetables to your door. In this recipe, I use fresh carrots that were delivered to me by Farmbox Direct. I have to be honest, this is my first time using this delivery service.  I have to say is very convenient to have vegetables and fruits delivered to your doorsteps. The products are carefully packed and protected by paper-like padding to protect them from damage and to maintain their freshness, and in my opinion, they accomplish that. All the vegetables and fruits in my box were deliciously fresh.

I used each and every one of the vegetables and fruits that came in my box. I have to say my favorite one was these carrots. As soon as I opened my box they catch my attention and I knew I had to roast them.
