Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts

"Do ahead and 20 minutes before dinner put them in the oven. There is a difference in the flavor when you finish them in the oven."

  1. Yummy veggies!! The oven does make a difference, I served it with Dancer^'s "Cod With Oregano", my husband doesn't like brussels sprouts but he liked this ..
  2. Bergy, these veggies were excellant!! went perfectly with our pork roast and mashed potatoes. So easy for something so good, didn't change a thing and thoroughly enjoyed them!! thanks for sharing another good one!!
  3. I LOVE THESE VEGGIES! I'm not a big brussel sprout fan, but my mom LOVES them. I just eat the carrots, and still those are EXCELLENT. I always double the recipe, because me and my mom always eat it all! lol. I also added some Mrs. Dash Orginal Seasoning, and some "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" Thanks for posting. I will be making it quite often. My mom is looking forward to going to the grocery store and buying more brussel sprouts. lol.
  4. Great way to do these vegies for a change. Thanks for posting. :)
  5. I loved that this put something I love with something that the kids like. I doubled the recipe and it was great to have a veggie that everyone ate without too much balking. I steamed them in a pan that I was going to use to make gravy. Then I put them in the roasting pan and off we went without dirtying any more dishes.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
