When folks first decide to clean out their pantry and raid the veggie section of the grocery store, there are some common staples I see everyone immediately go for. First on the list is broccoli; people will grab broccoli like it’s going out of style in the name of healthy eating. Second, asparagus. These spears get carried like a Greek army going to war. And third? The trusty carrot. It’s bright, it’s orange, and it’s crunchy. After a couple weeks though, people seem to start getting tired of doing their best Bugs Bunny impression every day. Never fear though, this recipe will help breathe some new life into your carrots and keep you coming back for more. In fact, there’s a rumor going around that this was the recipe Superman used for his carrots, to keep up his X-ray vision.
2 pounds carrots, cleaned and peeled
2 TBS sugar free maple syrup
1 TBS dijon mustard
1 TBS yellow mustard
1 TBS minced garlic
1 TBS rice wine vinegar
2 tsp coconut aminos
Salt and pepper
Parsley (fresh or dried) for garnish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, tin foil, or a silicon mat for easy clean up.
Prep the carrots: rinse, peel, and cut however you like. I sliced the carrots long way twice to shorten the cooking time.
Spread the carrots on the prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
Mix together the maple syrup, both mustards, garlic, coconut amino, and vinegar.
Pour the mixture on the carrots making sure they are evenly coated. Top with salt and pepper.
Bake the carrots for around 45 minutes or until soft and starting to turn brown at the ends.
Sprinkle some parsley on the top to make it look professional and enjoy!
