Maple and carrots were made for each other! The natural sweetness of these two flavors work together well, especially when roasted.
Maple roasted carrots are really easy to make. It only takes a couple minutes of prep time to cut the carrots and get them in the oven. Then while they are roasting, you can work on the rest of the meal.
