“The Incident” in my elementary school cafeteria left me cooked-carrot averse. (Think mean lunch lady, waterlogged carrots from a can, tepid milk, and force feeding.) But my mom introduced me to the sweet goodness of roasted carrots and saved the day. These carrots are tender, not mushy, with lovely brown bits and a flirty whisper of cumin that’s brightened with a ping of mint. Take that, lunch lady!
