Not a fan of raw carrots? I like them with a dab of ranch dressing, but many people would prefer to avoid them. If that’s the case for you, you are not going to believe what cooking carrots will do for them. They have a sweetness that is brought to light when you roast, sauté or grill the carrots. Plain, they are nothing to write home about, but combine them with the following ingredients and you have a knockout side dish that you can serve with steak, fish or chicken.
