Super Easy Veggie Side: Grilled Carrots with Fresh Ginger


Another super easy side that pleases both the children and adults in our home.

Grilled Carrots with Ginger


carrots
fresh ginger, grated
olive oil
kosher salt
pepper
Heat the grill to medium. Lay a piece of foil on the grate (unless you own some fancy grill pan contraption that'll keep the carrots from slipping in the cracks...). Drizzle the foil with a bit of olive oil, toss the carrots on and grate some fresh ginger on top. (I use a microplane zester, which I have linked here.) Sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt and a twist or two of pepper. Cook to your desired doneness, tossing the carrots with tongs so none of them get too brown, and the fresh ginger is mixed in. Serve warm or room temp. Delicious and so easy!

  1. I love ginger and carrots together. I don't have a grill, but I'm sure it's delicious.

  2. I don't see why you wouldn't also make this in the oven, roasting the carrots, with equally delicious results. I'd probably roast them at 350...
