Tender roast carrots tossed with a maple pecan pie sauce!

  • 2 pounds carrots, cleaned and trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  1. Toss the carrots in the mixture of the oil and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until tender, about 20-30 minutes, turning once in the middle.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining maple syrup, the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium heat until it starts to bubble and boil.
  3. Add the pecans and cook for 2-3 minutes before turning off the heat.
  4. Serve the roast carrots topped with the maple pecan pie mixture!

Note: You can use whole carrots or carrots sliced into bite sized pieces of any shape. When using whole carrots, they should be thin ones, no more than 1/2 inch thick; you can slice thicker carrots in half (or quarters) lengthwise so that they are thinner.
Option: Instead of roasting the carrots in the oven, you can cook them in a pan with some oil.
