Not that there’s anything wrong with the basics that make your inner child smile.  Keeping your inner child happy and satisfied is definitely important.

But, sometimes, more adult versions are called for.  And these Maple Ginger Glazed Carrots do the trick.

I especially enjoy how the fresh ginger contrasts with the sweetness of the maple syrup to make for a more sophisticated side dish.

I know…I don’t get very “sophisticated” that often — and it’s still arguable if cooked carrots even meet that standard — but work with me on this one!

  1. Lacey,
    pics are amazing and I want to take it for 15 people at Thanksgiving. How many does this serve? How many lbs. of carrots (or how many carrots) would I use? should I NOT use those baby peeled carrots that r sold in bags? Thanks so much!

  2. This sounds great! Going to take this to one of two company potlucks this week. We have a “plump calendar” all December – someone brings in goodies every day. I do eat it, but turn largely vegetarian at evening meals in defense, so I’m taking this to our potluck (yes, in addition to daily sin-food, we have a potluck.)

  3. Can I substitute honey for maple syrup? My husband is not so crazy about maple syrup. I am planning to make it for Thanksgiving. Thank you.

    1. You know, Pat, that’s a very good question. I’ve never tried this recipe with honey, but I’d imagine it would turn out good as well. I might try with a bit less honey to start and then add it to taste, as it may add a sweeter flavor than the maple syrup. If you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out for you 🙂

  4. These look like they taste amazing! Have you tried eating at Moonshine on 5th and Red River? The food is awesome! They make a maple carrot that is delish. I’m excited I can now add it to my dinner menu. Thanks!

  5. I plan on making these on Easter to go with our ham and I am super excited to eat them because they look SO DELICIOUS!

  6. What a great, healthy side dish! Your pics are gorgeous! These glazed carrots are going on my menu rotation!
