Maple Carrots and Cashews

Maple glazed carrotsFrom Cheryl Tallman, founder, Fresh Baby

Baby carrots are very toddler-friendly and most children love cashews. We’ve teamed up these two great tastes in a simple side dish that will appeal to both the young and old.

1 pound baby carrots

1 cup chicken/vegetable broth

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp maple syrup

2 Tbsp chopped cashews

In a saucepan bring the chicken (or vegetable) broth to a boil. Add the baby carrots and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour carrots and broth into a colander to drain. With the saucepan still hot, add butter and maple syrup and stir until melted. Add the carrots and toss gently. Transfer carrots to a serving dish and sprinkle the carrots with chopped cashews. Makes 5-6 servings.
