1 min read

These brown butter maple glazed roasted rainbow carrots are a must-try for anyone looking for a new dish to add to their arsenal. The colorful array of carrots not only makes for an impressive presentation, but also provides a variety of nutrients.

To start, preheat your oven to 400°F. While that’s heating up, grab a large baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Peel and wash 2 pounds of rainbow carrots, making sure to dry them off thoroughly.

Now it’s time to make the star of the show – the brown butter maple glaze. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Once melted, let it cook for another 3-4 minutes until the butter starts to turn a light amber color and you can smell a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and whisk in 3 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of honey, and a pinch of salt.

Arrange the carrots in a single layer on the baking sheet and drizzle with the glaze, making sure to coat each carrot well. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the carrots are tender and caramelized.

When plating, group the carrots by color for a stunning presentation. Each color provides different nutrients, with purple carrots being high in anthocyanins and orange carrots being high in beta-carotene.

To round out the dish, here’s what you’ll need for the recipe:

– 2 lbs rainbow carrots
– 4 tbsp unsalted butter
– 3 tbsp maple syrup
– 1 tbsp honey
– pinch of salt

These carrots make for a perfect side dish to any meal, but they can also stand alone as a vegetarian option. The sweetness from the maple glaze pairs perfectly with the earthiness of the roasted carrots, proving that healthy doesn’t have to mean boring.

So next time you’re looking to switch things up in the kitchen, give these brown butter maple glazed roasted rainbow carrots a try. Your taste buds – and your guests – will thank you.
