  1. Wow, usually something that looks that good has a lot of calories. I must try this.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I could eat a whole bowl of just those carrots!

  3. Yum! My mom use to make a very similar dish when i was a child. She used regular carrots cut into “coins” (Baby carrots didn’t exist yet) and the only thing different is she didn’t use maple syrup. Just butter and brown sugar on steamed carrots. A very fond childhood memory. Thanks for bringing that back to me. :-)

  4. ooo.. I’m more interested at the meat next to the carrots. Hehe

  5. I’ve made it without the maple syrup. It tasted delicious! Thanks!

  6. nice dish, protein and vitamins plus pytochemicals coming from carrots. Just don’t like fats especially if it is LDL.

  7. could I ask if there is a substitute for maple syrup, sometimes it’s not readily available n our place c: please answer it I really love to try this c:

  8. Here’s an easy substitute for maple syrup. Ingredients needed:

    1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon maple extract (or vanilla extract)
    1 teaspoon butter
    1 cup boiling water

    Place the granulated sugar in a heavy skillet. Heat until the sugar melts and turns brown (keep the heat very low so the sugar doesn’t burn). Meanwhile, place the brown sugar into a heavy saucepan. Pour water over the brown sugar and bring to a boil (without stirring). Add the caramelized white sugar to the melted brown sugar in the saucepan. Simmer, stirring often, until the syrup has thickened. Remove from the heat, and whisk in the butter and maple/vanilla extract.

    This makes about 1 cup.

  9. This dish sounds too good to be healthy but it is! Another great recipe to have when trying to lose weight.
