Delicious Maple Citrus Carrots! Roasted with maple syrup and the secret weapon, lemon-lime soda.




  1. Preheat broiler to low. For a broiler with only one setting, place an oven rack 5-6 inches away from the heat.
  2. Melt butter over medium high heat in a broiler-safe pan. When the butter is beginning to brown, add carrots in a single layer. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning periodically, until carrots are seared on all sides.
  3. Turn heat down to medium. Pour maple syrup and about a quarter cup of soda over the carrots, stirring briefly to coat. Let them sit until the liquid has reduced to a syrup.
  4. Repeat until all the soda is used with only a couple sloshes of liquid left in the pan. Slide the pan under the preheated broiler.
  5. Allow to cook for 5-10 more minutes, or until the carrots are very brown but not burned. There should be a little bit of syrup left in the pan.
  6. Drizzle remaining deliciousness over carrots and serve immediately.
