The first time I saw a bag of Rainbow Carrots, I knew I had to buy them. And, they were organic (no nasty chemicals)!  Double bonus! I’m all about eating the Rainbow Carrotscolors of the rainbow, so these totally fit the bill. I love a pretty dish!

The first time I had Rainbow Carrots I decided to roast them in the oven whole. They were so pretty, I didn’t want to cut them.  Roasting is my favorite way to do root veggies It is sooo easy!

But this time I decided to cut them into big chunks about 1-2 in. and mix with cauliflower. I’m all about saving time, so roasting them at the same time saves time & clean-up. You could always put the chicken in there too for a one-pan dish! I made my Pan-Fried Chicken Thighs because they are my husband’s favorite!

This dish is so full of healthy vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folate, Vitamin K, B complex vitamins and Vitamin E & many more…

Carrots have powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, anti-aging and many more. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene. This is converted into vitamin A in the liver. It has also been shown to protect against macular degeneration and cataracts, So make sure you eat your carrots!

Cauliflower has anti-inflammatory benefits, prevents cancer, aids in digestion, cardiovascular benefits, lowers cholesterol & many more. So eat your cauliflower too! This is a perfect side dish to accompany any meal.
