When I'm a "bad mom" and cook up chicken nuggets and tater tots for lunch I add baby carrots to the pan with a touch of grape seed oil and salt. These cook in the same amount of time as the frozen beige foods and helps this evil meal not be so evil. My kids don't really like hard carrots but will eat them soft-roasted all day. I just started being a roasted veggie fan last year after my friend Christina had her kids loving these carrots. Hope it helps you too!
