This week, I’ve been all about the minimal ingredients recipe, as I’ve yet to get to the grocery store.
And one of my favorite go to quick and healthy side dish recipes to use in situations like these, is this Roasted Balsamic Glazed carrots Recipe. It’s so simple, yet so tasty, and it’s such a yummy way to get my toddler to eat more veggies!
When you add up the nutritional stats for these roasted carrots, it comes out to 2 Points, but if carrots are technically 0 Points, then the nutritional stats of the remaining ingredients are only 1 Point per serving. So that’s how I chose to count it. Though, I will double check with my Weight Watchers leader at my next meeting and see which is the correct way to count it. Nonetheless, it’s a delicious and incredibly easy carrot recipe that helps give you more vegetable recipe ideas.
These roasted carrots are a great accompaniment to a great variety of entrees, and go on our dinner table quite a bit.
