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.
