  • 2 lbs organic carrots washed & cut (into 1/4-inch-thick slices or into strips)
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh herbs Pick either rosemary, parsley, tarragon, or one of your own favorites

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar and maple syrup to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes (or until liquid has reduced by about half and thickened to a glaze consistency.
  3. While the glaze is simmering, cook the carrots. Cook about half the carrots at a time for best results. Boil for about 5 minutes for strips and 8 minutes for slices. The carrots should tender-crisp.
  4. Drain carrots & transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. Pour glaze over carrots and stir until well coated.
  5. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until tender.
