A great dish to serve to celebrate the beginning of Fall. Serve with sweet italian sausage and additional veggies for a filling home-cooked meal. Or, if you're vegan, a plate of root veggies and hummus alongside this dish goes wonderful too!
2 bunches small carrots, peeled, trimmed
2 tbsp Grade B, high quality maple syrup
1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
Salt to taste
Heat a small amount of sea salt water in a medium sauce pan. Cook carrots until just tender.
Drain well, place in bowl and toss with maple syrup, thyme and salt. Kids also enjoy the slight sweetness of the carrots.
These little sliders are great for a picnic or a sports party. Serve with a grilled chicken salad for a full meal with gluten-free cupcakes.

Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
