It is so quick and easy to roast small quantities of vegetables in my small toaster oven. It is such an energy saver especially during hot weather when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen by using your regular oven for small quantities. Use your own favorite spices give it a try!
6 – 8 medium carrots
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Serves: 3 || Prep Time: 15 minutes || Cook Time: 20 minutes
Preheat 400°F toaster oven for 5 minutes (can be roasted in regular oven too). Cut carrots lengthwise, then cut in half again or to make thickness of pieces similar. Place carrots in a medium sized bowl; add 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or enough to coat; stir until all carrots are coated. Line the baking pan in the toaster with parchment paper; place carrots on the paper. Mix spices together then sprinkle half the spice mixture on the carrots. Place in the preheated toaster oven and roast for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven, turn carrots over then sprinkle with remaining spice mix. Roast for another 10 minutes. It’s that easy!
