I love when people say "no, I don't eat that" and then I put that Della Flavor on it and viola-they can't keep their chops off it.
Carrots are one of those foods that not only kids aren't to fond of but adults too (especially men). Well hunni, prepare my Maple Glazed Carrots for him and as always serve it sexy accompanied with his favorite protein and I'm sure you'll be adding this simple and sassy side dish to your repertoire. Hint: when they ask (because they are gonna ask) "what kind of carrots are these?" Add some culinary knowledge by simply responding "I've prepared Carrot Vichy for you darlin."
Get the recipe below:
12 large carrots, peeled
8 tbsp. butter
¼ cup maple syrup
Fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp. fresh parsley
1. Cut carrots into 2" lengths, then halve or quarter the pieces lengthwise so that all the carrots are in equal-size strips.
2. Melt butter in a large heavy sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add carrots, cover, and braise, stirring occasionally, until carrots are fork-tender, 20–30 minutes.
3. Increase heat to medium, and stir in syrup and a squeeze of lemon juice. Cook for 2 minutes, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Add chopped parsley and mix well.
