Maple-Soy Glazed Carrots

So if I can be honest, carrots are not my favorite vegetable. Actually, usually I’ll sorta go out of my way to not eat them. But! When you pay upfront for a CSA and you get a couple of pounds of carrots…you find a way to like them. And what better way than by covering them with a delicious glaze?

This is a great side dish for your stir-fry or some fried rice. Or it’s a little late, but on the Thanksgiving table would also be tasty and healthy. Next year!

Maple-Soy Glazed Carrots

  • About 2 lbs carrots, washed, trimmed and cut into 2-3″ pieces
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce (I used low-sodium tamari)
  • a couple drops sesame oil
  • a pinch each of ground ginger and garlic powder
  • 2 tsp arrowroot (or cornstarch) + 2 tsp room-temperature water
  1. Steam the carrots until tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return to pan.
  2. Combine all ingredients except arrowroot, whisk to combine. Add to the carrots and bring to a simmer.
  3. Stir arrowroot into 2 tsp water. Add to the carrots and stir well. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens. Serve!


(And a merry Christmas to everyone!)
