Roasted Maple Orange Glazed Carrots
Carrots are the perfect Spring side dish! Although they are good in salads, or cooked stove top with some olive oil and sea salt, roasting them is my favorite way to prepare them. The recipe I am sharing with you today is elegant and delicious, but really simple. Whole roasted carrots in a maple orange glaze. You just toss them with oil, pop them in the oven, give them a little glaze and they are super delicious! I serve them with some crunchy pistachios and fresh parsley, and they make a beautiful and healthy side dish. This would be the perfect addition to any Easter meal.
