coastal living magazine offers a nice variety of dinner in a breeze recipes, for those meals to enjoy while vacationing.  i find their recipes very clean and fresh, offering a nice mix of easy preparation techniques using lots of fresh vegetables, fish and lighter fare.

this citrus herbal roasted carrot recipe was very good and a nice option from other ways i often prepare carrots for dinner. it uses fresh orange juice and fresh or dried dill.  it is both easy and quick.  i certainly will prepare these carrots again. the hint of orange juice is very light and does not overpower the carrots.  i think it would be nice to add some zest of orange as well for presentation and added flavor.

to make the roasted carrots: i used a ceramic baking dish and preheated the oven to 375 degrees.  drizzle the dish with about one tablespoon of olive oil and add 5 tablespoons of fresh orange juice.  arrange the cleaned carrots in the dish, and sprinkle with dill.  another option would be to use tarragon for another distinct flavor.

bake for 20 to 30 minutes until fork tender.  season with fine sea salt if desired.  serve and enjoy.  this is a nice side dish for any chicken or fish entrée.
