I grew up on boiled carrots and hated them. So the idea of cooked carrots turned me of for many years. Then I tried maple roasted carrots at a farm to table restaurant a couple of years ago and I couldn't get enough. Not wanting to heat up my kitchen with the oven, I switched up the recipe a bit and fell in love with these lovely sautéed zesty carrots.


Ingredients
 8 Large carrots, peeled and diced. 1 lb. baby carrots. You can use multi-colored carrots too!
 2 tbsp Olive Oil
Dry
 ½ cup light brown sugar. Lightly packed
 1 pinch Ground Cumin
Glaze
 ½ cup honey or maple syrup
 2 tbsp butter



Directions
1

Using a nonstick pan, add your carrots and olive oil and bring to a sizzle with a medium heat.

2

In a small bowl, mix all of your dry ingredients.

3

Let your carrots cook for about 2-3 minutes.

4

Slowly add your dry ingredients and stir well. Get them nice and coated in your spices as they cook.

Cook for another 2-3 minutes.

5

Add your brown sugar and honey or maple syrup, and stir. Melt in your butter and cook on a low to medium heat for 3 minutes or until they reach a nice caramel coloring.

Add Sea salt to taste. And enjoy hot!
