In this recipe, we go back to basics, because not everything at the holiday table needs to have a long list of hard-to-find ingredients to be delicious! With a smattering of crumbled creamy cheese, these roasted carrots and candied nuts make for a perfect and simple side dish.
We used pecans in this photo, but hazelnuts and walnuts will also work well. The best way to store nuts to keep them fresh and crunchy for longer is in an airtight container away from direct sunlight. But if it’s a little too late, candying your nuts can make them crunchy and addictively delicious again.
