From what I gather bunnies love carrots. Not any carrots will do….they prefer carrots that are colored like the rainbow. Add some sweet mandarins and I bet the Easter Bunny will be banging down your door with all four paws.
Carrots have a natural sweetness that is fondly brought out when you roast them. Adding mandarins sweetens ’em even more…
Are you planning an Easter or Mother’s Day brunch? These carrots make the perfect spring side dish.
They would also be the perfect addition to the Thanksgiving or Christmas feast (bookmark for next year.)
They also make the perfect side for the roasted pheasant above….stay tuned, that recipe will be posted on Wednesday.
This recipe can be vegan or not, your choice. Roast the mandarins and carrots with ghee, butter, olive oil or coconut oil.
All depends on your tasted preference and food style.
They are also a nice addition to salads. Enjoy!

Marla, Thanks for the recipe shout out.
Rainbow carrots are adorable indeed!
It does look like a rainbow indeed. When I came to San Francisco I was amazed after visit on a market. Such a beautiful vegetables and you have carrots in different colors 🙂 And now I know what I’ll prepare before `i leave.
I always love seeing these rainbow carrots – haven’t been able to find them around here, but hoping to see them at our farmer’s market this year.
Oddly enough I find loads of these beauties here in Telluride….but I can’t find many basics. Go figure 😉
Oh wow, those carrots are lovely, so vibrant in color! I love the idea of adding carrots into my Easter feast 🙂
I believe I’ll need the larger plates (the super gigantic 11 inchers, not the 9.5 I mentioned in my Easter round up) for all the wonderful sides I keep seeing and adding to my menu.
Great looking carrots. Thanks, Marla!
Thanks Kirsten! I know that feeling about having to up the plate size 😉
