glazed rainbow carrots with pomegranate and thyme

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! I'm going to share a tip with you on how to approach your Thanksgiving meal...

TIP: make sure there is color on your plate!

Thanksgiving meals tend to be comprised of beige and brown foods like mashed potatoes, biscuits, stuffing, gravy, turkey, etc. And don't get me wrong, these foods are delicious and should be included. But it's really important to think about adding balance and color to your plate, and I've got a delicious colorful recipe below to help you do that.

These glazed carrots are easy to make, just roast them in the oven for 45 mins with a little butter, sugar, cumin, and paprika. Then topped with fresh thyme and pomegranate seeds for even more color and flavor. Scroll down if you need evidence of how beautiful they make a Thanksgiving plate look. Hope you love them! xo
