Roasted Spiced Carrots

While roasting brings out the sweetness in carrots, this easy make-ahead side goes one step further to blend sweet and savory flavors. Large chunks of carrot are roasted with olive oil, cumin, and cinnamon and then tossed with raisins and parsley. Substitute baby carrots if you'd like.
