I just love carrots, but that wasn’t always the case. I guess it’s because I grew up eating them the wrong way, boiled and tossed in butter after. Boring!
So there was a time that I hated carrots, so much so that I never bought them in my adult years at all.
But I knew I had to find a way to eat them since they’re packed with beta-carotene a vitamin that is very important to have in your diet according to the eye doctors.
Not to mention the fiber along vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, vitamin B8, folate, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese, proves just how important it is to get this vitamin rich food in your diet as much as possible.
This recipe is super simple, you don’t even have to peel the carrots if you don’t want too. However if you decide to, they can be a good thing to add to your dog’s next meal.
To make this simple side, you will want to wash the carrots well then chop off the ends, and lay them out on a non stick pan.
Drizzle all over with olive oil and a few tsp of butter, along with thyme, basil and oregano and parmesan cheese then let your oven do it’s thing. Serve as a side dish to any meal, goes great during the holidays too!
