Maple Roasted Carrots

I am always looking for new ways to serve old favorites, like carrots. While browsing Pinterest for sides for Thanksgiving I came across this recipe for Maple Glazed Carrots, and decided it would work well. So I changed it up a little and made these Maple Roasted Carrots.

I modified the recipe up by using olive oil instead of butter, and adding garlic too. I love garlic, so I tend to add it to most vegetable dishes! I also used multi-colored carrots to make the dish look pretty, which makes it perfect the the Thanksgiving table.

The purple and white carrots taste just like the traditional oranges ones, but they add a little more excitement to the dish to take it beyond boring carrots. I found a 2 lb bag of organic multi-colored carrots at Trader Joe’s, which was just the right size for making this side dish.

The maple syrup gives the carrots a nice sweet taste without overpowering the dish. And the Maple Roasted Carrots are easy to make and take only 1/2 an hour. All in all this would make a great addition to Thanksgiving dinner!
