Maple Balsamic Glazed Roasted Carrots

Maple Balsamic Glazed Roasted Carrots are an easy and flavourful way to serve up your carrots! These make an excellent side dish for your dinner and are impressive enough to serve for special dinner occasions! Thinking these are going to be making an appearance at our Thanksgiving dinner!

I have always been a fan of roasted carrots. There is something that happens to them as they roast away in the oven that transforms them into a irresistible, carmelized veggie side that I can’t stop eating! They often become my favourite thing on my plate, stealing the limelight from whatever main course we are serving with them. No shocker there, really. I have always and will always be all about the side dishes when it comes to my meals!

Veggies are my favourite. A quick browse through my site and its obvious I love to include all sorts of veggie components to my dishes (and a good sprinkling of herbs, of course)! Although I have sadly developed a food sensitivity to some of them, there are still so many veggies that I include in my diet and I am always looking for ways to transform them…and get my husband to develop a love for too!

We don’t always like the same veggies and some of his faves are things I can no longer eat (e.g. cauliflower). Thankfully, one of the things we can both enjoy is carrots and roasted carrots top both of our lists! There are so many ways we enjoy flavouring them, and today I am sharing with you one of our current faves. It’s made an appearance on our dinner plate twice already this week and will likely show itself on Thanksgiving too!

How to make Maple Balsamic Glazed Roasted Carrots

I love this dish for its simplicity. It takes just minutes of prep time and a few ingredients. Then the carrots do their magic in the heat of the oven. The end result is absolutely delicious!

To make these carrots, you will need:

  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and sliced in half (if any carrots are very large, you may wish to cut them into quarters)
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Peel and slice your carrots to the desired size. I like to slice them in half (or quarters if they are especially large).

Mix the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and olive oil in a bowl to create . Toss the carrots in the glaze. Reserve the rest of the glaze to brush on halfway through the cooking process.

Arrange the carrots on the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Take out and brush with the glaze and then return to the oven to roast for another 15 minutes or until the carrots are fork tender.

I hope you enjoy this side dish!

Bon appetit!
