about this recipe

make ahead easy prep few ingredients

We gave humble carrots the star treatment using the slow cooker! Sliced and cooked with velvety butter, bright lemon zest, a sprinkling of salt and a touch of sweetness from maple syrup, these taste rich & decadent but are made with lots of good-for-you ingredients.



Add the carrots to a 6-quart slow cooker. Add butter, maple syrup, lemon zest, and salt.



Cook until the carrots are just tender. Do not uncover during this time. Uncover, add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, stir and taste.



Toss with chopped parsley and flaked sea salt, if using, and serve.

These can be made ahead a few days in advance, stored & refrigerated in a tightly sealed lidded container, and easily reheated. A great option to keep in mind for your Easter dinner!
