Maple-Glazed Carrots

My favorite way to eat carrots—hands down—is by roasting them alongside potatoes. And for a long time, this was the only way I’d eat them. Lately, though, I’ve found another method that rivals my longtime favorite. It’s maple-glazed carrots sprinkled with just a touch of ginger.

The recipe is very simple and would also work, I think, if you roasted the carrots in an oven or broiler. Enjoy!

 Maple-Glazed Carrots

1 lb. carrots, sliced diagonally into 1/8-inch-thick pieces
4 Tbsp. maple syrup
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1/4 tsp. salt
Ginger (for garnish)

•Place the carrots in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Cover with water and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain the water.

•Add the maple syrup, orange juice, and salt, then stir. Let the carrots cook for an additional 5 minutes.

•Sprinkle with ginger and serve.
