Welcome to the second dish of my Thanksgiving series. I thought I would share a simple side dish. These baked maple ginger carrots may be simple to put together but they are big on flavor. My kids really enjoy them and I think it is because they are cooked just until tender crisp. We aren’t big mushy veggie fans here so my veggies are always cooked til they still have a slight crunch.
They maple syrup adds to the sweetness of the carrots and the ginger is a nice compliment and adds something special to the dish. I love how easy this is to put together and get on the table cuz with 6 littles running around you need an arsenal of quick but fabulous dishes 🙂 .
- 2 pounds carrots
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
- salt to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel carrots and cut to 1/4" thickness. Place in 13x9 inch baking dish.
Combine maple syrup, butter, vinegar, ginger and salt. Pour over carrots and cover. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until desired tenderness.
Spoon carrots into a serving dish and pour juices over carrots. Garnish if desired.
