When I was younger, I was not a fan of carrots. I didn’t like them raw or cooked. It’s funny because now that I am older, I love carrots; both cooked and raw for snacking. Now that my taste buds have grown up I have been experiencing with different spices with my dishes, and it’s amazing how they can transform a meal! Here, I roasted carrots spiced with turmeric, and wow, the flavors are like ‘POW’! Instead of adding roasted carrots to our dinner, I was craving a mash of some sort and decided to blend the carrots with coconut oil and water. Blending it made a flavorful purée that was the perfect side of our dinner!
To get a little more protein in our meal, I topped the purée with crispy, spiced chickpeas; and boy it was a great addition! I highly recommend this topping, but it’s completely optional!
Until next time friends, Namaste. ♥
