Maple-Roasted Carrots

By Gail Gordon Oliver

Makes 4 servings

1 pound carrots (the thinner, the better), peeled if desired

1 tbsp avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp pure maple syrup

Toss the carrots with the oil and salt to coat well. Place the carrots in a single layer onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray. Bake in a 400º F oven until the carrots are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Brush the carrots all over with the maple syrup. Bake until the carrots are lightly caramelized, 5 to 8 minutes.
