I’m the worst at side dishes in that…I always forget to make them. If I get my act together enough to make us a decent main course, chances are pretty high that I will completely neglect to consider a side dish until we’re sitting down for dinner and I realize our plates are 90% chickpeas. The struggle is real.

So I’ve been focusing lately on coming up with some ultra-easy side dish recipes for the forgetful like me. And today, that means these Slow Cooker Carrots!

This recipe has all of five ingredients and two steps. You throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning before you start your day. Turn it on and let it soften the carrots to tender perfection. When you’re home in the evening, you’ll have slightly caramelized, garlic-infused, balsamic carrots! This is what side dish dreams are made of, guys.
