Glazed Carrots


Glazed Carrots

In my house, we eat a whole lot of carrots. You will always find cut carrots in our refrigerator for snacking on, and I also like to serve them as a side with pasta or rice dishes. This recipe truly brings out the best in carrots!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Servings: 4


  • 16 ounces carrots (cut in half if large)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • Cinnamon
  • Parsley (finely chopped)


  1. Steam carrots until slightly tender (about 8 minutes).

  2. Remove from heat immediately and transfer to a pot filled with ice cold water to prevent from overcooking and getting mushy.

  3. In a large skillet, whisk together oil, mustard, and maple syrup over low heat.

  4. Add steamed carrots and saute until all well heated through (about 1-2 minutes), stirring well to coat carrots with maple glaze.

  5. Season carrots generously with sea salt or kosher salt and a dash of black pepper.

  6. Add a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.

  7. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

Bon appétit!
