Chili Maple Roasted Carrots - healthy and easy side dish your family will love || Aggie's Kitchen

Roasted vegetables are definitely my go-to when it comes to side dishes at dinnertime. I just love how easy it is to toss some veggies with some seasoning, crank up the oven and let the magic happen without much involvement from my part. You know I am ALL about easy.

I make these roasted carrots all the time. I recently made them to serve with this Slow Cooker Asian Citrus Pork Tenderloin recipe. Since carrots are naturally sweet I don’t need to add too much (pure) maple syrup to them, just enough to give them some more flavor. The chili and smoked paprika gives them a subtle kick of spice, but not in a way that little ones can’t enjoy them. In fact, my little ones LOVE these carrots, which is a big reason I try to make them often.

These roasted carrots go with everything. You can easily double (or triple) the recipe if you are serving a large group (great holiday side dish!).

For a weeknight meal they pair up perfectly with these Mini Cheddar-BBQ Turkey Meatloaf Muffins or homemade baked chicken nuggets.

    Carrots really are the best holiday side dish. I was in charge of assigning recipes for our church Christmas party this year, and I had all the side dish people bring carrots because they are pretty hard to mess up. I’ll have to remember this recipe for next year 🙂

    I love the chili powder and paprika on these, with the maple syrup! I often do honey + cinnamon + flaky sea salt.

    I love carrot dishes that have a little bit of spice to offset their sweetness like this one!
