Get your kids eating this easy carrot side dish on a weeknight dinner this week! They hold up well in the fridge for a few days, too- making it a meal prep rockstar.
Hey, wanna know how to get your kids eating more vegetables?
Make a carrot dish dish with butter and maple syrup.
I know, I know. It sounds like you’re basically making candy out of carrots.
And honestly, in a way, that’s exactly what you’re doing.
This kid-friendly carrot side dish is big, soft bites of carrot, cooked in butter and maple syrup.
First, you caramelize the carrots in butter, getting a lovely brown and toasty thang going.
Then, you add maple syrup and a lid to the pot, so they steam in the sweetness and retain that lovely brown caramelization.
We love these carrots on the side of something hearty, like a pot roast or roast chicken.
And they hold up like rockstars in the fridge for up to 5 days, so they get an extra participation trophy in the meal prep game!
