Maple Roasted Carrots
This is my favorite way that I've ever eaten carrots, and with such simple preparation I'm sure I will be doing this again. The maple taste was very subtle, next time I think I'd double the maple syrup just to pack in more flavor. I used sugar-free maple syrup because that is what we keep on hand, but any maple syrup would work.
-1 lb carrots, peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
-1 Tbsp olive oil
-2 Tbsp maple syrup
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper
Whisk together olive oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Toss carrots with maple mixture. Place carrots on greased baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes at 425, stirring and flipping carrots every 10 minutes.
