These Caramelized Garam Masala Carrots are tossed in a fresh lemon juice + garam masala blend and then baked to perfection. It's time to let the vegetable be the star of the dinner table show!

Caramelized Garam Masala Carrots

Sometimes, I just want the vegetable to be the star of the show. I want to cook up a simple protein (maybe a pan-seared fish) and simple starch (maybe some white rice) and plate them next to a KILLER vegetable. These Caramelized Garam Masala Carrots hit the spot! They're tossed in the loveliest garam masala + lemon juice mix and then baked until the outside has a slight caramelized finish. Garnish with some chopped golden berries (or currants would be great!) and fresh parsley.

If you're looking to serve these at a dinner party, they're stunning next to even fancier proteins (rib roast) and a lovely pot of garlic mashed potatoes. I just love them!

If you can't get your hands on garam masala, curry powder could be a substitute.  If you're looking for more rockstar veggie ideas for you next dinner, you might also LOVE these Ginger Orange Caramelized Carrots as well!
