Ingredients

For the Maple Glazed Carrots

  • 2 1/2-3 lbs carrots peeled & sliced at an angle into 1” thick slices
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
  • 3 1/2 tbsp maple syrup , you can also use coconut nectar syrup, organic agave, honey (if not vegan) or another liquid sweetener. Omit for Whole30.
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine-grain sea salt or kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme finely chopped

For the Garnish

  • fresh chopped parsley and/or mint
  • 2-3 fresh basil leaves
  • toasted shelled pistachios a few roughly chopped and some whole

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Peel and slice the carrots into 1” thick slices on a bias (angled).

  2. Place the carrots in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with oil, maple syrup and coconut aminos. Sprinkle the carrots with garlic powder, salt, black pepper and fresh thyme. Toss well (with clean hands works best) to coat evenly.
