My mom is obsessed with the sweet earthy carrots that I make every Thanksgiving. I often offer to give her the recipe but she always just waves her hands, saying that she’d rather have me make them for her. It’s something to look forward to each year. But the years roll by and every time I place them in front of her, she lights up and takes a heaping amount. I usually send her home with the leftovers and I can just see the glee in her eyes with the idea that she can enjoy them for a few more days. So when Anolon asked me to come up with a signature side dish using their Vesta 9 x 13 baking dish, I knew I had to make these roasted rainbow carrots. I know my mom probably won’t make them for herself, but if she ever wants to, she can finally get the recipe over at Anolon!
I’m teaming up with Anolon for the next six weeks to create recipes for their site for the holidays! And follow their hashtag #holidayhosting for more holiday recipes and fun! A special thanks to Anolon for sponsoring this post. I was compensated for developing the recipe on their site as well as this post and all Anolon products were provided by them. However all opinions above are totally my own and are not endorsed by Anolon.

Those carrots look fantastic — I love the colors. I believe that roasting vegetables makes such a big difference than simply steaming them. The caramalization enriches the earthy aroma and taste. Okay, I’m going to put you on the spot — if you had to pick one Analon product to begin with — which one would it be. This poor blogger is having to save her pennies for camera, lighting and a new laptop.
Ha! I hear ya. Blogging is crazy expensive right? So honestly, I’d look at your own cookware and see if you have any holes in your collection or anything that needs to be replaced. That’s probably the best way to pick something. That said, I just started working with the Anolon Nouvelle Copper 3 Qt Covered Saute with Helper Handle and it’s really great! Super versatile, oven safe but not too super big and unwieldy on the stovetop.
All that in mind, keep an eye out here on the blog… I might be doing a giveaway of some Anolon products if I can work it all out for the holidays… 😉
Not really a fan of cooked carrots (I prefer them raw) but this recipe could make all the difference! Might slip in a parsnip or 2 🙂
I bet this is so good! These flavors are perfection!
