Maple + Rosemary Roasted Carrots

Maple + Rosemary Roasted Carrots

Roasted vegetables are a staple part of our weekly meals. We typically stick to just olive oil, salt & pepper for the seasonings, but the rosemary and maple syrup give these carrots an extra boost of flavor. We paired them with sauteed kale and a slow roasted pork shoulder. These maple + rosemary roasted carrots would make the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving.
