Roasted Cumin-Lime Carrots

Carrots could easily be the bastard child of the vegetable world. I think that needs to change. Carrots are such a tried-and-true, familiar sight in just about any kitchen; so dependable and ordinary that we don’t even notice them growing whiskers and getting limp in the refrigerator vegetable bin, probably right there next to a sad, yellowing bunch of celery. And just forget about those elderly, foot-long, Grand Canyon-cracked carrots with their greens lopped off that you buy individually and invariably taste like a mildewed bath math; who knows how long they’ve been hanging around in storage? The kind of carrots I’m talking about are bunches of sweet babies you can take home with their fresh green tops still attached. I’ve been training myself to treat fresh carrots as well as any other vegetable; not as an afterthought. Cooking breaks down the cellulose in vegetables so they are a bit more digestible, but the healthy beta-carotene in carrots needs fat in order to be absorbed. Ingredients

Zucchini and Carrot Noodles with Avocado, Pea & Kale Pesto My two favourite kitchen appliances are my food processor and my vegetable spiralizer.

They’re really inexpensive, so easy to use and just so incredible! Seriously being able to make fresh vegetable spaghetti is unbelievable.
