The BEST Honey Mustard Carrots

We sisters are firm believers in the power of fresh herbs. Basil, Dill, Rosemary, Chives, Parsley, Thyme… you name it, we LOVE it. In our opinion, even the most humble of ingredients can become extraordinary if paired with the right fresh herbs.

Enter the carrot. Pretty much each and every one of us has carrots in our fridge. But when was the last time you ate a carrot out of enjoyment instead of obligation? We used to be carrot eaters out of obligation too (they are cheap and can be found in Alberta all year long!) But recently we found a way to LOVE them! We’re talking, really love! The secret to this love is none other than the herb superhero, Rosemary. Rosemary can elevate almost ANY flavour profile, amiright? It goes so wonderfully with the grainy mustard and sweetness of the Honey these carrots will soon become a household staple! Don’t believe us? I dare you to switch up your weeknight side of veggies with these bad boys and report back!
