Spruce up your side dish game with glazed grilled carrots finished with an orange-maple glaze.
Almost every vegetable I grill gets tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper. These carrots are no different. They’re seasoned and grilled over direct heat to get a nice caramelized char.
While the carrots are grilling, whip up this incredible sauce. It will take your carrots from great to chef-quality. It’s made in a matter of minutes with garlic, maple syrup and orange juice and zest. I also add red pepper flakes for a touch of heat. Adjust the amount to your heat tolerance.
Once the carrots begin to soften, remove them from the grill. Add them to a platter and drizzle with the orange-maple glaze. For a pretty presentation, garnish with fresh herbs and sliced almonds. I like to use parsley because it resembles the tops of the carrots, but other herbs like sage and rosemary will be wonderful, too.
