Carrot Sauté with Maple Syrup and Coconut Oil

Carrot Sauté with Maple Syrup and Coconut Oil

I saw this recipe on Simply Scratch and had to make it. I’ve been trying to use more coconut oil in my cooking and this side dish looked delicious. The carrots turned out perfectly flavored with a bit of sweetness from the maple syrup and a hint of coconut from the oil. The carrots were crisp-tender and delicious and they paired nicely with the Mushroom, Bacon, and Herb Stuffed Pork Tenderloin and the Kale Sauté with Roasted Butternut Squash, Dried Cranberries, and Pecans. My kids both mentioned a few times throughout our meal, how good the carrots were, so I’d call that a success! I may just make these tasty carrots for a Thanksgiving side dish this year.
