Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds carrots (about 8-12)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Peel, trim ends, and cut carrots into equal-sized pieces about 2 inches long.
  • Place carrots on a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet, leaving a little space between carrots. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and mix to coat.
  • Sprinkle with red pepper flakes, if using.
  • Place carrots in oven and roast for 15 minutes.
  • While roasting, whisk together the maple syrup, soy sauce, and remaining olive oil in a small bowl.
  • Remove carrots from oven and drizzle with the maple syrup mixture. Turn carrots gently to coat.
  • Return carrots to oven. Roast 10-15 minutes longer, or until carrots are tender. Carrots are done when a fork can be inserted easily.
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to two days.

Notes

Change it Up
  • Replace the soy sauce with balsamic vinegar.
  • Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons fresh thyme or sprigs of fresh thyme before roasting.
  • Skip the maple syrup mixture in Step 7. Halfway through cooking, toss the carrots with ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese and 2 teaspoons minced garlic instead.
