These carrots caramelize in the oven with pure maple syrup, which heightens their natural sweetness. Add just a pinch of spices to harmonize the flavors and create a delicious medley.
- 1 lb carrots, diagonally sliced
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 tsp pure maple syrup
- Pinch of each: salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried thyme
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Placed sliced carrots in an oven safe pan. Whisk together the olive oil and maple syrup. Pour over the carrots, and sprinkle the spices. Toss gently to coat. Roast in the oven until slightly soft, about 30 minutes.
