This week's Sunday Supper theme is all about root vegetables! I know, according to the calendar, we still have some time before spring arrives, but man, everyday I am "feeling it"!  The birds are chirping and the days are getting longer.  Some of the veggies I think of when spring arrives are asparagus, onions, peas and yes, carrots!  

Give carrots some love! I think carrots often get looked over as a veggie of choice.  Sure, they are almost as important as onions and garlic, in some recipes, but we don't eat them on their own very often.  At least that's how it is in my today...I'm paying tribute to the carrot!

Oven roasted veggies rock! If you know me, you know my favorite way to enjoy ANY vegetable is roasted in the oven.  Roasting brings out the sweetness in veggies and does so particularly for root vegetables like carrots.  Carrots are great coated in a little olive oil and salt and pepper and roasted until done, but they are even better with the addition of honey and Dijon mustard! It just elevates them to another flavor level. 

I finish this dish with a squeeze of lemon just before serving to brighten it up just a bit and take the common carrot to new heights!  Make sure you stop by all the recipes in the links below and check out what all the Sunday Supper tastemakers are sharing today!
