Ingredients

  • 1/4-1/2 Cup Vegetable Broth/Stock
  • 2 Pounds Carrots
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Bourbon
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple or Date Syrup
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Cayenne
  • Cilantro, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the carrots into your desired shape.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup of the vegetable broth in a large pan over medium heat. Add the carrots and salt to the pan. Cook for 5-8 minutes, adding more vegetable broth if the carrots start to stick to the pan.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Pour in the bourbon and cook until it is almost evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the maple or date syrup. Continue to cook and stir until the carrots are almost cooked through.
  5. When the carrots are almost cooked, turn up the heat and allow the glaze to thicken for about 30 seconds.
  6. Remove the carrots from the heat. Season with cayenne pepper and ground black pepper. Transfer to serving dish and garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired. Enjoy!
