Curry Roasted carrots with Peanut sauce

My mom was able to get me to eat carrots as the only other whole food. She also made sure I ate canned pears and peas. She would always cook them with pot roasts, and they became so soft and sweet I thought they were candies.

The roasted carrots have a similar texture, but they are a little more savory rather than sweet. This is because I smothered them in my favorite spice mix, curry powder *. The sweetness comes from carrots’ natural sweetness and homemade peanut sauce. This is a great combination.

This recipe was a total failure. I tried to make coconut millet, but I was unsuccessful. I then tried it with vegetable stock. It was much tastier and less sticky. Please let me know if you have mastered the art of coconut millet. I haven’t found the trick yet.

These carrots are a great side dish for any meal, including spicy grilled chicken and baked lentils. I love carrots by themselves, so I just ate them with Millet and a little sauce *. I found it to be very filling. Feel free to use this recipe for inspiration and create your version. This has me thinking that a curried peanut carrot soup would be fantastic. Maybe it will be the next time.
