Equipment

  • Microwave

Ingredients
  

  • 1 bag baby carrots, or 2 cups carrots, sliced, or one (15.5-ounce) can carrots
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons light butter
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • Place cut carrots and 2 tablespoons of water in a microwave safe-dish. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 6 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
  • Add butter, lemon juice, maple syrup, and salt. Stir until well coated and butter is melted.

Notes

Prep Tip
Cut carrots cook quicker than baby carrots. Whole baby carrots will cook in 4 to 6 minutes while cut carrots take 2 to 4 minutes. Or use canned carrots and cook just until hot, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Change it Up
Use 1 tablespoon brown sugar instead of maple syrup.
