Roasted Rainbow Carrots

Rainbow carrots are a novelty vegetable and relatively new to the farmers markets.  They do taste different from the favorite orange variety.  The batch of carrots in our Bountiful Basket were wonderful!  The white variety tasted relatively mild, while the purple carrots were sweeter than the orange carrots I am used to eating.   I decided to roast them and feature them for our Sunday dinner.  They were savory and sweet and definitely well-liked by my family.  Enjoy!
