In this quick vegetable side dish, maple-vinegar-glazed carrots are topped with gomasio, a blend of toasted sesame seeds and salt. Find gomasio in the natural-foods section or Asian-foods section at large supermarkets or at Asian markets. Or substitute 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • If necessary, cut carrots into pieces no larger than 1/2 inch thick. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, vinegar, syrup and salt in a small bowl. Add the mixture to the pan and boil, uncovered, until it starts to thicken, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer, partially cover and cook until the carrots are tender and coated with sauce, 4 to 6 minutes more. If the carrots aren't quite tender but the pan is dry, add 1/4 cup water and continue cooking, partially covered, until tender. Serve sprinkled with gomasio.
