Pan Fried Carrots & Yogurt Truffle Sauce

 It's definitely feeling like Fall around here and summer vegetables are vanishing from the farmers market and our kitchen. Thankfully we have an abundance of delicious fall vegetables to choose from and lots of different ways to cook them. This pan-roasted carrot recipe is a simple dish that can be made as an appetizer or side. We ate them in combination with a roasted chicken dish. Enjoy!
