Lemon juice and garlic balance sweet sautéed carrots flavored with fresh marjoram. A simple yet exceptional side dish, it goes equally well alongside meat, fish or poultry.

When roasting vegetables, it's important to chop them evenly so they cook at the same rate.
3. Carrots with Tahini Dressing

4. Carrots with Lime Butter
This healthy side dish gets a touch of butter for richness—it also helps promote the absorption of vitamin A from the carrots.

Starting with dried chickpeas instead of canned ones makes all the difference in this citrusy side dish.
