Kid-Friendly Carrot Recipe

My kids go absolutely crazy for these carrots! Jade said “Mommy, can you make these always??” and even little David wolfs them down. I served them for the first time on pizza night and they ate the entire plate of carrots before finishing their pizza. I was shocked! Major veggie win! Adults love them too because they are perfectly sweet but not too sweet.

How to Make Maple Roasted Carrots

These Maple Roasted Carrots are seasoned mildly and the golden brown sear makes them absolutely addictive. I like to slice them thin and cook them for a long period of time so they get nice and tender. This also lets the maple flavor soak all the way through. They are like candy! I could absolutely see these on a holiday table too. Really, you can’t go wrong with this carrot recipe!

Health Benefits of Carrots

You may have grown up hearing about how good carrots are for your eyesight (and that’s true!) but they do so much more. Carrots are low in calories and offer dietary fiber. They’re high in beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A. This is good for eye health but also your immune system as well as healthy skin. Go carrots!

Description

This is the carrot recipe that my whole family is in love with! Kids and adults alike can’t get enough of these Maple Glazed Carrots, and they’re so easy to make! Slicing carrots thin allows them to cook quickly and sautéing them with a bit of maple syrup gives a hint of sweetness that pairs perfectly with their natural flavor.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups thinly sliced carrots from one bunch (~1/2 pound) of carrots, ends removed, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the carrots, olive oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper.  Stir well to evenly coat the carrots.  
  2. Sauté over medium heat for 15 minutes until the carrots are fork tender and the outside is slightly caramelized and golden brown.  Be sure to stir occasionally to ensure the carrots get evenly browned (every five minutes or so).  After each stir spread the carrots into one even layer across the entire bottom of the skillet to ensure they all are getting browned.  Do not let them cook in a small skillet in a big pile or they will not caramelize and cook evenly.
  3. Serve immediately.  Or, store once they have fully cooled in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Notes

If your carrots are thick you may need to cut each slice in half to create half moons.
