This recipe for Golden Carrot Bake makes a hearty side dish. I’m serving it as the side dish to the broiled tilapia on my Costco meal plan.
When developing my weekly meal plan, I chose fish for Friday out of respect for any/all celebrating the Lenten season.
I broil the tilapia with a bit of lemon juice. And if I have any lemon pepper I might sprinkle a bit of it on too.
When planning meals, I often find that making one dish that requires prep work combined with one dish that requires minimal prep work helps my dinners come together quickly.
Plus, it saves on dishes. Which is truly what is important!
Golden Carrot Bake is a substantial whole food side dish that makes a nice compliment to a simple main dish.
