I can’t say enough good things about these carrots. SOO Good! In addition to carrots, I also used parsnips, because I had them in the fridge and I love how they taste. So simple, healthy, and ever so delicious. I made them two days in a row to have with our dinner, that’s how much we like them. One day only used cilantro, next day, used cilantro and parsley. Both ways, just as good. Waited until the edges and some undersides were toasty and crispy. My husband was uttering…Mmmm Mmmm while eating them. Into my Best Of file they go. Thanks so much, Teresa, for sharing! Made it for FYC.

These make for a wonderful side dish, not only taste great but make for great presentation. We are vegetable lovers and love carrots, my family- the cilantro not so much, which had me sub the Cilantro with Italian parsley (that sub always seeems to work well for me) have to say no leftovers for these carrots. Will be making these again for sure! Nov 2019, I love herbed carrots and I love cilantro, most of my family not so much insisting it tastes like soap. I scaled the recipe back and made with cilantro which does give it that special zesty taste I enjoy. I have this recipe saved along side our family favourites. It's a keeper!
