Roasted Carrots and Peas
IMG_8500
To compliment our chicken I decided to do a carrot and pea recipe with roasted potatoes.
Carrots roasted turn even sweeter and syrupy not to mention soft. Paired with the sweet peas with spices was a perfect compliment to our savory chicken.

The spices and lime juice really wake up this traditional side. The cumin and coriander bring some earthiness while the lime juice and ginger bring a pop to the sweet roasted peas and carrots. If you are looking for an easy side that might bum the kids out when they see it but cause them to raise an eyebrow when you force them to take a bite…this might be it.

Ingredients:
Carrots (peeled and quartered)
1 cup of Frozen Peas
2 tbs of olive oil
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp ground ginger
1 tsp of cumin
Lime juice
Kosher Salt and Pepper

Directions:
First Roast your carrots in a sheet pan with salt, pepper and oil at 400 for about 20-30 mins. Then remove and add your spices and lime juice and stir in your peas. Cook for another 5-10mins.
