I’d say that I make these Maple Glazed Turmeric Carrots about weekly!

I mean cooked carrots are delicious as is, but add maple syrup and I’m sold. Especially when the recipe is so simple to make.

All you need to do is drizzle some olive oil onto peeled carrots, splash a bit of maple syrup on top of that and then sprinkle everything with turmeric.

Then bake everything in the oven until the carrots are soft and the maple syrup has caramelized.

Deliiiiish!! That caramelized maple syrup is juuuuust delightful.

I originally started making this recipe with only olive oil and Turmeric, but then my sweet tooth kicked in, and I tried adding maple syrup on a whim.

To my pleasant surprise, I realized that the maple syrup crystallized and caramelized in a delicious hardened caramel of sorts, which really kicks these carrots up a notch.

This recipe is a great side-dish that adds a lot of flavor and antioxidants to your meal.

Enjoy!
