I’ve never been a fan of roasted carrots until I tried them at Chalk Point Kitchen in Soho. They changed my opinion of them and inspired me to recreate them at home. This is great side for any holiday party or simple dish. Some other favorite holiday sides are Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash and Grilled Fennel with Parmesan.

When I got these beautiful organic carrots from my CSA, I knew I wanted to make this dish. Using the best quality ingredients is key for best results here! As for the truffle oil, a little goes a LONG way so you need a very little amount. You can use truffle salt instead if you wish, or if your not a fan, leave it out.  You can of course double or tripe this recipe to feed more people, hope you enjoy!
