  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound carrots, preferably multicolored, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk vinegar, maple syrup and 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Combine carrots, salt and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl; toss to coat. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Roast the carrots until starting to brown and almost tender but not completely cooked through, 16 to 18 minutes. Drizzle the balsamic mixture over the carrots, and, using a spatula, toss to coat completely. Continue roasting until the carrots are tender and glazed, about 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with toasted hazelnuts, if desired. Serve immediately.
