Total Time:
30 mins


  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound medium carrots with green tops, scrubbed well, 2 tablespoons of the greens chopped and reserved for garnish

  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted cashews


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a large heatproof skillet, melt the butter in the olive oil over moderately high heat. Add the carrots, salt and pepper and cook until browned all over, turning occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the vinegar and maple syrup. Shake the skillet to coat the carrots. Transfer to the oven and roast for 6 to 8 minutes, until the carrots are just tender but still crisp in the center. Transfer to a platter, top with the cashews and carrot greens and serve.
