Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lb carrots, peeled and cut diagonally into 1/4-inch slices (about 6 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus additional to taste
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp organic unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Preparation

  1. In a 12- to 14-inch skillet on medium-high, heat oil.
  2. Add carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in broth and 1/2 tsp salt, scraping up any browned bits in the skillet with a spoon, and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until carrots are tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Uncover, increase heat to medium-high and cook until liquid has almost entirely evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in maple syrup and butter, stirring until butter melts. Add traditional salt and sprinkle with parsley.
