Hi folks, I have a yummy kid-friendly, primal-friendly and naturally gluten-free recipe to share with you today. Maple Glazed Carrots, with a smidge of butter, shallot and a touch of cinnamon. They are mapletastic.
They are so great at this time of year when carrots have been freshly dug. I love the warm cinnamon flavor and the savory vinegar, salt and shallot to balance the sweetness from the maple and carrots. I love them with roasted chicken. And they would even make a great side dish for Thanksgiving!
Here I am making them on TV. Look at those crazy beautiful carrots!
This Maple Glazed Carrots recipe is also available on the Healthy Living Blog.
