Maple Roasted Carrots
“Roasting brings out the inherent sweetness in carrots—but add a little maple syrup and butter and you have a caramelized vegetable your kids (and you!) will actually want to eat seconds of.”
1½ pounds carrots, sliced ¼ inch thick on the diagonal
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
2 teaspoons snipped fresh chives (optional)
1Preheat oven to 400°F.
2Stir carrots, butter, maple syrup, salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast, stirring once, until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with chives, if desired.
