Maple Roasted Carrots
Maple Roasted Carrots are so easy to make and they are absolutely delicious which are the perfect side dish for your healthy meals.
Ingredients (6 portions)
5 cups carrot sticks
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. powdered mustard
Wash and scrub the carrots to remove dirt. You do not have to peel them, but that’s totally up to you.
Then, you can either leave the carrots whole, or cut them in half, longwise. They will cook faster if you cut them in half.
Next, transfer carrots to a foil lined rimmed baking sheet in one single layer. Don’t overcrowd the pan.
Dot carrots with pats of butter and pour over a mixture of maple syrup with brown sugar. You can definitely leave out the brown sugar, but it does add a ton of flavor to the overall taste.
Season with salt and pepper and toss around to combine.
Roast at 400˚F for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender. Cooking time will depend on the size of the carrots. To test for doneness, start checking at the 25 minute mark by piercing the thickest part of the carrot with a fork. If it goes through easily, the carrots are done.
Remove from oven; sprinkle with parsley and serve.
