These Cumin-Roasted Carrots with Sundried Tomato Sauce would be a great side dish for a steak dinner!

 

The vegetable world is chock-full of gluten-free options! One of my very favorites is the humble carrot.

I've always loved carrots and it seems I always have them on hand. Whether I'm serving them raw to my daughter to scoop up hummus, throwing them into a pecan-carrot cake cupcake, or making a hearty bowl of soup, they seem to make their way into a lot of things at my house. Apparently, I'm not the only one... Janet Helm, RD, just did a whole post here on her Trend Spotlight entitled "Crazy About Carrots". I'm glad carrots are seeing their day in the sun.

In addition to their awesome vitamin content (210% recommended daily average of Vitamin A... wow!) and incredible profile of soluble and insoluble fiber, they are 100% naturally gluten-free! It is tremendously important that when eating gluten-free we don't forget those foods that nature has gifted us. No alternative ingredients needed. The ones that are healthy for everyone.

I love roasting all vegetables, and carrots are no exception. Roasting pulls out their natural sweetness and turns them into heaven. These are topped with a smoky, spicy adobo sauce-spiked sundried tomato paste. The adobo sauce was spooned out of a can of chipotles in adobo sauce... it does add quite a kick, so if spicy isn't your thing, go with the lower range I've given below. You can find it in the international aisle of your grocery store.

These super flavorful carrots would be the perfect side dish to a chimichurri steak or a herbed rack of lamb. Maybe carrots aren't so humble afterall.
