Oregano Carrots

By: The Food Hunter

This dish is inspired by an antipasto on the menu of a favorite Philly restaurant; Pesto. Fresh carrot coins are boiled and left to marinate in a balsamic vinaigrette, laden with oregano & fresh garlic. These carrots are delicious served with Italian bread for swabbing up the marinade.

  14. So easy peasy! I could eat the whole bowl...and then probably end up with a slight orange glow :D

  15. When I was a child, I absolutely loved canned carrots. They were so sweet and soft and the coin shape made them even more fun to eat. Today, I no longer eat carrots from a can, nor feed them to my children, but these look like a wonderful (more grown-up) version of carrot coins that I'd be happy to try.
