Curried Carrots with Crunchy Peanut Topping

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.

My homegrown carrots are sweet and tender. When I have a bumper crop, I use this recipe to make the most of them. Warm curry spice and crunchy peanutty topping make this a no-leftovers dish. If you want to add a burst of green, use half carrots and half broccoli florets. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
