These caramelised carrots and onions make the perfect side dish for any occasion. The vegetables become beautifully glazed and lightly browned in the oven.

We used red onions fro their slightly sweeter taste and vibrant colour but white onions will work just as well. You can also use whole and unpeeled baby carrots for a refined yet rustic look.

This recipe is just something you can rustle up in a hurry. They are impressive enough to be severed along with a roast chicken for Sunday lunch but easy (and healthy) enough to have during the week too! They are great with grilled fish and are simply heavenly with a nicely cooked steak.
