maple carrots

Baby carrots are very toddler-friendly and most children love cashews. We’ve teamed up these two great tastes in a simple side dish that will appeal to both the young and old.


  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 cup chicken/vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cashews


In a saucepan bring the chicken (or vegetable) broth to a boil. Add the baby carrots and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour carrots and broth into a colander to drain. With the saucepan still hot, add butter and honey and stir until melted. Add the carrots and toss gently. Transfer carrots to a serving dish and sprinkle the carrots with chopped cashews.
