Smoky-Sweet Glazed Carrots 4.000

If your pantry contains Spanish smoked paprika, maple syrup and either broth or a bouillon cube, this savory side dish will set you back only the cost of a bag of carrots.


Servings: 4 - 5
Ingredients
  • 1 pound carrots (not baby-cut)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable broth (may substitute chicken broth)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons sweet or hot Spanish smoked paprika (pimenton; may substitute 1 teaspoon dark chili powder)
  • Kosher salt

Directions

Trim the carrots, then cut them crosswise into 2 1/2-inch pieces. Cut each of those pieces lengthwise into 1/4-inch sticks.

Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots and stir to coat; cook for 2 minutes, reducing the heat as needed to keep the carrots from burning. Add the broth, syrup and smoked paprika; cook for about 10 minutes, tossing the carrots a few times, until they are tender and lightly browned and the liquid has reduced to a glaze.

Season with salt to taste; serve hot.
