Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 4 people

Ingredients
  

  • 8-10 medium carrots
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped mixed nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Peel all of the carrots and place on baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil, and season with salt.
  • Toss the carrots around with your hands to coat everything in the olive oil and salt.
  • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat a small skillet over medium heat and add the chopped nuts.
  • Toast, tossing around frequently, until nuts are fragrant and slightly brown. (About 5 minutes)
  • Place the nuts on a plate to cool.
  • With about 5 minutes left on the carrots, heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat and add the maple syrup and mustard.
  • Whisk until the mustard is completely mixed in and starting to bubble. Turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer until thickened (5-10 minutes), whisking frequently.
  • Remove the carrots from the oven and let cool slightly, then place on a serving tray or bowl.
  • To finish, drizzle the mustard-maple glaze over the carrots and sprinkle on the nuts. Serve warm.
