There is nothing better than an easy, no-frills side dish.   These carrots definitely qualify.  They are simple, flavorful and include pantry staples.  And for once I will be keeping the intro short and sweet, just like these carrots… (bah-zing!)

Maple Glazed Carrots – 1 Knife


  • 1 pound of carrots
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Wash the carrots and cut them into ¼ inch thick slices along a diagonal.


  1. In a large pan (with a lid) combine the carrots, syrup, butter, water, salt and pepper.
  2. Place on a burner on medium-high heat and cook until the butter is melted and the liquid starts to bubble.
  3. Stir well and reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. Partially cover the pan and cook the carrots for about 15 minutes or until the liquid has reduced down to a thick glaze.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
