I don’t really shop much in the frozen aisle as I try to use fresh produce whenever possible. But sometimes, you just don’t have the time to peel, cut and slice your veggies so you just skip your sides altogether. And your serving of veggies.

That is, until I discovered crinkle cut carrots. Mind-blowing, I know. Plus, crinkles add such rusticness to a dish.

And with these crinkle carrots, you don’t have to slice anything. You don’t even have to take out your knife, unless you need that parsley garnish.

All you need is olive oil, honey, maple syrup and some pantry herbs. That’s it. From there, you can let these babies roast until they reach that crisp-tender goodness.

It’s quick, simple, and sure to be a hit with your picky eaters who have sworn off all veggies!
