Maple Lemon Carrots

Cooks great in the microwave!

Prep Tip: Cut carrots cook quicker than baby carrots. Whole baby carrots will cook in 4-6 minutes while cut carrots take 2-4 minutes. Or use canned carrots and cook just until hot (1-2 minutes)

Change it Up: Use 1 tablespoon brown sugar instead of maple syrup

Nutrition Tip: Carrots are low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals. Try to eat orange vegetables and fruits at least 3 times a week.



  1. Place cut carrots and 2 tablespoons water in a microwave safe dish. Cover and cook on high 3-6 minutes until tender. (See Prep Tip)
  2. Drain water and add butter, lemon juice, maple syrup, and salt. Stir until well-mixed and butter melts.
