If we were together in person and you weren’t reading this on a screen, I’d be jumping up and down, tapping you on the shoulder and telling you to pay attention because you just have to meet Arielle. I’d tell you about how her blog will inspire you both in and out of the kitchen. This girl is a design genius and she’s also the queen of cocktails! I asked if she’d be willing to share one of her favorite veggie recipes with you all today, and she knocked this one out of the park! Ok, without further ado, meet Arielle, a local Richmond blogger & friend of mine!

Hi all! I’m Arielle. On most days I can be found over at Scotch & Nonsense, where I share my love for bold home design, great food, and kicky cocktail recipes. While I’m not a vegetarian like Liz, I do eat meat-free most days, and I definitely heart vegetables.

I have a few requirements for the vegetable dishes that go on heavy rotation in our house. They have to be nutritious, obviously, but I don’t like feeling like I’m depriving myself. If I have the prospect of a bland or unsatisfying meal ahead of me, chances are high that I’m just going to order pizza instead. Which kind of negates the whole nutrition goal. So yes, I like to keep it healthy, but I’ve got to have some heartiness and plenty of flavor to keep me interested.

This all leads me to today’s recipe for roasted carrots with harissa and honey. This dish is super easy to throw together, and it’s got plenty of good flavor. If you’re not familiar with harissa, it’s a North African spice mixture that’s smoky, a bit spicy, and absolutely divine. It’s not too spicy when mixed with honey and the natural sweetness of carrots, so don’t be scared. Instead, you get a simple, healthful dish with a deliciously complex flavor. Plenty to keep your interest.
