Maple Roasted Carrots
Maple syrup is a magical ingredient in the kitchen. Other than pancakes and waffles, maple syrup turns simple ingredients into much-celebrated dishes; it adds amazing sweet taste to foods, for example: oven-roasted carrots with maple.
Brown butter is butter cooked over over medium heat. As the butter melts, it will begin to foam and turn golden brown in color. See the picture of brown butter (image credit: Serious Eat) below.
Is Maple Syrup Better Than Honey?
While I love honey and use it a lot in my cooking, maple syrup is definitely healthier than honey. It has less sugar content, i.e., less fructose.
Both of them are natural sweeteners but maple syrup has slightly lower calories than honey. (Source: SF Gate)
When it comes to roasting carrots, I love both honey and maple syrup. Both imparts a natural sweet taste to carrots and enhance the natural flavor of fresh carrots.
Personally, I think maple syrup is easier to work with. It’s thin and easier to pour out from the bottle, even if you refrigerate your bottle.
Anyway, it’s Fall and I like the natural fragrance of maple syrup in my food. This Brown Butter Maple Roasted Carrots side dish elevates regular carrots to a new level. Brown butter imparts a toasty and nutty flavor, and it pairs perfectly with maple syrup.
How to Make Maple Roasted Carrots?
This recipe is very easy. First, you start off on the stove top. Saute some garlic with the brown butter, then add the carrots, maple syrup, salt, black pepper and herbs (I used thyme and Italian parsley).
Next, you roast the carrots until they turn tender. Try it, I guarantee you that even the pickiest eater would love these carrots!
