These were very good. I only had regular carrots, so I sliced them and steamed them. One of my kids loved them, the other one not so much. I thought it was a nice change. Read More

Looking for maple roasted carrots with carrot top pesto so... start with thin carrots with tops trim tops leaving some green. Slice in half. Toss with 2 Tb olive oil and 1/4 C maple syrup. Chop up greens with 1/3 C parmesan 1/4 C almonds 1 tsp maple syrup maybe some lemon zest. Chop in food processor. Cook carrots flat in pan at 375 for 40 min. Read More

I sliced fresh organic whole carrots, steamed them in the microwave for 2 min 15 seconds, and drizzled on the maple syrup-butter mixture. This was a nice side dish for a roasted pork loin, mashed potatoes, and freshly-cooked apples. It really doesn't get much easier than this. Read More

I love my carrots like this. I add a little more salt for that sweet/salty contrast. Very simple! Read More

Made this yesterday. Roasted the carrots instead of boiled them and used large carrots cut up as I didn't have baby carrots. It was very tasty. Read More

Used frozen sliced carrots which I cooked on the stove. Added the butter and syrup to the pan after I drained the carrots. Loved the flavor. It's a keeper. Read More

Easy to make. Choose this to get a super picky eater to try carrots because said child loves maple syrup. These were too sweet for me but my picky kid did try a bite, gave a thumbs up but refused to eat anymore. Read More

This was a pretty good easy recipe. I used whole carrots cut into sticks. The cooking time on the carrots is way off. You shouldn't go over 8 min. Maybe baby carrots are tougher (haven't used them for ages the whole are so much sweeter). Read More
