It's easy to overthink vegetable recipes and end up with a mushy mess. Balsamic maple carrots are an instant crowd pleaser with little effort required!
I have, on occasion, rushed to get this made, so I have just drizzled the liquids over the carrots instead of mixing. It’s a difficult recipe to mess up, so go for it!
Make this a staple side dish to your next family dinner to ease the kitchen work without easing the quality on the table.
