I’m working with Grimmway Farms to share their sweet baby carrots with you. We love to eat them out of hand and to use them in recipes. They have a number of great products to check out.

I roasted the carrots and leeks with olive oil & garlic salt first to bring out all their fabulous flavors.

I’m so in love with the flavor & vibrant color of this soup!

Of course I topped this recipe with crispy bacon & goat cheese.

Just so you know…baby carrots are full-grown, young premium carrots that are cut, peeled and packaged to make eating carrots easy, portable and enjoyable for the whole family.

Carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, providing over 15 essential vitamins and minerals along with phytonutrients and fiber that are important for good health. Cool huh!
