Clean Eating Side Dish



Ingredients

2 lbs carrots, peeled and sliced at an angle into 1/4 inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup vegetable or chicken broth
1/2 tsp sea salt (plus more to taste)
2 tablespoons maple syrup (I only used one)
1 tablespoon butter
1.5 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

1. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add carrots and cook until browned and crisp tender, about 8 minutes. 
2. Add broth and salt, stirring to scrape up the browned bits and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 5 minutes longer. Uncover, turn heat back up to high and cook off any additional liquids, about 1-2 more minutes. 
3. Remove from heat, stir in butter, syrup and parsley. 
4. Serve with your favorite main dish and enjoy!
