It's time for SRC again! Each month, as part of the Secret Recipe Club, we're assigned another blogger, and we get to pick a recipe from their blog to make. Well, this month, I got Nichole's blog, Cookaholic Wife. And it certainly was hard to choose a recipe to make! So many options! Finally, I decided on Five Spice Carrots.
Recently, we decided to try going without our microwave, so meal prep takes a bit longer, especially since I used to make only one part of a meal and filled out the other parts with microwaved leftovers. For example, I might make the main dish one day, and a side the next. Reheating with a microwave = quick. Reheating without a microwave, not so much. As a result, I'm constantly on the search for meals and sides that don't need a lot of hands-on time. Fast prep, easy recipe, and materials on hand all pushed me towards these Five Spice Roasted Carrots.
You can likely find Five Spice powder at an Asian grocery or some better stocked grocery stores. If not, Amazon's got you covered.
