Cardamom Carrots

Last night, I found myself in a pickle. I was making dinner and I only had carrots for a veggie. I’ve never really liked roasted carrots. I think the taste of cooked carrots is kinda icky. Still in the holiday mood, I reached for honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. It turns out, these four ingredients gave me a new love for roasted carrots.
