Our new charcoal grill has been the source of much inspiration this summer, from bean burgers to Spanish fare to salad greens. So when the carrots from our square foot garden were harvest ready, we knew just what to with them – toss them on the grill!

As expected, grilling brought out a lovely sweet flavor in the carrots (there doesn’t seem to be much the grill can’t improve!). Tossed with the lime juice, cilantro, and just a touch of cumin, they were an excellent treat!  We ate them as an appetizer since their small size lent well to finger food; they would also be great as a side dish.

Check your farmer’s markets or the grocery’s organic section for carrots on the small, thin side (if none are available, you could use larger carrots and cut them in half lengthwise). And don’t worry if you don’t have a grill – roasting the carrots in the oven can achieve a very similar taste.
