Summertime brings out grilling season and why keep grilling to just meats?? Throw these carrots together in no time and let the grill do all the work!!
Last week, I was at the grocery store with my kiddos (YEA, summer break, right?!?!) and I noticed baby carrots on sale. My kids saw them as well as declared they “needed” to grab a few bags. Who was I to turn down vegetables with my kids, right? Well, once back home and in my fridge, my kiddos no longer were interested in having the carrots and ranch they claimed sounded so good.
Rather than the carrots go to waste, I decided to add them as a side dish to our dinner and spruce them up with a bit of seasoning. I used on hand ingredients, cooked these on the grill in a foil packet, and the end result was enjoyed by the entire family!
Clean up was a breeze because of the foil packet, so all in all, these will definitely be a new repeated side dish in my house!
