Sweet & Savory Side Dish

The maple-sweetened carrots are roasted in a GoodCook 1.5 Qt Ovenfresh Stoneware Casserole Dish until fork-tender. The GoodCook OvenFresh Stoneware line is made of durable porcelain with an easy-to-clean enamel glaze, and features an attractive oven-to-table design. 

While the carrots are roasting away, it’s time to make the citrusy yogurt sauce. If quick and easy is your thing, you’ll love the PROfreshionals Herb Mincer. It’s the fastest way to chop the dill you’ll need for this recipe. Pair it with the GoodCook Citrus Squeezer and the GoodCook Fine Zester Grater for the citrus zest and juice.

All that amazing flavor is infused with yogurt and drizzled on the carrots when they come out of the oven. Paired with any protein, these Citrus Maple Roasted Carrots with Yogurt Sauce make a perfect side dish!  

After drizzling the yogurt sauce on the carrots, sprinkle on Mrs. Cubbison’s Honey Roasted Pecan Pieces & Cranberries. Mrs. Cubbison’s Fruit & Nut pieces combine crunchy nuts and sweet dried cranberries and make the perfect addition to salads, oatmeal, yogurt, and this tasty carrot dish.
