What do I need for these Tahini Maple Glazed Carrots?
You only need a handful of ingredients to make such a great dish, and most of the ingredients you might even have in stock like me.
- Maple syrup
- Sea salt and pepper
- Nutmeg and cinnamon
- Parsley or herbs for garnish
How is this carrot side dish prepared?
Carefully wash the carrots so you do not have to peel the carrots. Now look for a sufficiently large pan or baking sheet that fits in the oven.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare the glaze. To do this you mix all the ingredients for the glaze and carefully coat the carrots.
Now put the carrots on the baking sheet or pan lined with baking paper and bake the carrots until soft. This can take about 15 minutes. For this I usually stab with a knife to see if they are soft.
The tahini maple-glazed carrot side dish is now finished.
Why not peel the carrots?
For one thing, all the carrots vitamins are hidden under the skin. On the other hand, you want the skin on the carrot because the peel has the main sweetness of the carrots. And isn't it great that you have so much less work in preparation?
What can I use instead of Tahini?
If you do not want to use tahini for whatever reason, you can of course replace it. Instead of tahini, you can use other nut butters, such as cashew or almond.
How long will these maple glazed carrots last?
We often have leftovers of these side dishes and usually eat them within 3-4 days. You can also freeze the carrots if you want. That's up to you. Just bake the carrots in the oven again.
Are carrots healthy?
Carrots are even very healthy for you. And often these are neglected in the selection of go-to vegetables. Carrots are full of minerals and vitamins and can contribute to a healthy or healthier life. For example, carrots are full of beta carotene, which is converted by the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A protects the eye, and improves skin and mucous membrane health. Carrots are full of fiber, which are well-tolerated, thanks to the composition.
Other minerals and vitamins:
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin C
