The secret of elevating simple to sublime is picking the right combination of quality ingredients. Creamy Castello Havarti has an ability to delightfully melt while adding extra taste to the meal, which makes it a superb choice. These roasted carrots are great as a side dish or as a vegetable snack, and on top of that, roasted carrot is easy to make. Simply toss the carrots with oil and salt, then add the cheese for the last 2-3 minutes in the oven. Most roasted carrot recipes will suggest adding the cheese only for the last few minutes. Adding the cheese in the beginning will result in not just melted cheese, but highly likely burnt cheese. This roasted carrot recipe suggests roasting your carrots in the oven, but using your grill with the carrots wrapped in tin foil or a BBQ tray is also an option.

tips & tricks

Can I use other vegetables than roasted carrots? Yes, you can switch the roasted carrots and go with roasted potatoes, zucchinis, peppers, mushrooms, or onions. Or if choosing only one is too hard, you can serve a mix of vegetables. If you bake them up separately you have a range of delicious side dishes or snacks to serve. Mix them all in one and you have a wonderful and slightly heavier side dish or meal. You can also try seasoning with other herbs and spices if you have preferences. Roasted carrots are slightly bigger than other smaller vegetables and easily serve as a fulfilling side dish on its own, whereas going for mushrooms or peppers might require a few more side dishes to satisfy a hungry crowd. Creamy Castello Havarti will elevate almost any vegetable and the cheese will smoothly melt regardless of which vegetable you chose to go with.
