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.

I'd gotten a bag of Chinese five spice to make Chinese BBQ, and I'm always looking for new ways to use it. It's got such a tantalizingly complex flavor we just enjoy.

You can likely find Five Spice powder at an Asian grocery or some better stocked grocery stores. If not, Amazon's got you covered.

What are some of your favorite seasonings or spice blends?

  6. Now that is a fun idea! We normally eat quite a few carrots - and sometimes have a bag languishing around in the fridge so it's nice to see a great change up recipe! Thanks for sharing with us at Throwback Thursday!

    1. We also usually have a bag of carrots around, and this is a great way to make an easy side and make sure those carrots don't languish for too long! :)

  10. I don't know anything about that spice. Wondering if it would be too much heat for me.

    1. I wouldn't think it would be too much heat. It's more of a cinnamon kind of spicy - more like a warm sweetness. The ingredients are cinnamon, fennel, cloves, star anise, and white pepper, although I can't really say I've been able to taste the white pepper in it. You could also try using just cinnamon and/or star anise instead, but the flavor will be a bit different. :)
