carrots, whole baby are best (I use a 1 pound bag)
olive oil to coat carrots
fresh basil, coursely chopped (at least a big bunch)
1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
Toss carrots with olive oil, sprinkle with chopped basil, pour maple syrup over all, cover. Nuke 10 minutes or bake @350 regular oven 20 minutes or until desired doneness. I have cooked this in a waterless cookware pot for 10 minutes and gotten the same results---NO LEFTOVERS! Kids and adults love them even when they otherwise refuse to eat carrots..
Never have had this recipe tested; they never lasted long enough.
