Impulsive Culinarian’s Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots Recipe

(Serves 6 to 8)

 

Ingredients
  • 4 pounds Ugly Carrots
  • 1/4 cup Real Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 to 5 sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper

 

Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Weigh out 4 pounds of carrots
  • Cut the peeled carrots into equally sized rustic chunks
  • Put the cut carrots into a large mixing bowl
  • Add the maple syrup and olive oil to the bowl
  • Only add the salt and pepper once your oven is pre-heated and you are ready to roast the carrots
    • Adding salt too early will extract the water, making it difficult to get a nice browning on your carrots
  • Add salt and pepper to the mixing bowl
  • Toss together well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined
  • Line a 10″ x 15″ baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Transfer the carrots to your lined baking sheet
  • Place your fresh sprigs of thyme on top of the carrots
  • Roast in the center rack for 30 minutes
  • Using a spatula, carefully flip the carrots in the baking pan and return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes
  • Serve immediately or keep warm in a covered casserole dish until ready to serve
