Warning: this recipe contains anchovies.  I hope you’ll keep reading because anchovies are actually a delicious way to flavor a dish.  They melt into a smooth paste that disappears into a sauce but imparts a flavor like no other.

  1. WOW! Who would have known?! My husband likes anchovies but my sons and I are not that brave. I’m going to have to try this out and not mention the secret ingredient and see what they (and I) think. I’ve roasted carrots before and added orange juice and they’re delicious but this sounds really interesting. Thanks!

  2. It’s a beautiful dish. As long as I can just dump those anchovies into the pan and not touch them, I’m willing to try it. Since I like Caesar dressing, I should like this too, right?

    Looks so good!

  4. Hmmm… that’s some secret ingredient! I roast carrots with EVOO quite often, and sometimes I do a little drizzle of honey, but This is entirely new and different! I’m very curious to taste them!

    REALLY? Anchovies? I’ve never heard of that. I bet that adds tons of flavor. I’m not a big carrot eater, but I bet my family would like them. Thanks for sharing.
