  • 5 large carrots chopped into rounds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1-2 tbsp butter


  • Boil the carrots until soft (see tips / notes).
  • Drain them.
  • Toss with 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of maple syrup over medium heat.
  • If you're like me, maybe add a lil more butter because you're obsessed.


  • Make sure to scrub and, if necessary, peel the carrots before slicing them.
  • For cooking the carrots, put the sliced carrots in a medium saucepan. Add 1 cup water and about 1/2 tsp of salt. Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, put the lid on the put and cook  the carrots for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the carrots are fork-tender.
  • For extra-fancy carrots, purchase a "wavy knife" and make crinkle-cut carrot slices. 
  • Feel free to use ghee instead of butter, or coconut oil for a vegan version.
