The humble carrot is made the star of the show in this sweet and zesty side dish. Thanks to two kinds of mustard, pure maple syrup and fresh dill, these carrots are so good even those not fond of the root vegetable will be licking their plates.
Place the sliced carrots, maple syrup, whole grain mustard, mustard powder, salt and pepper in a medium saucepan along with 3/4 cup water.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover and turn down the heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes, until almost tender.
Uncover, cook on high heat, stirring often, until the carrots are tender and no liquid remains, about 6-8 minutes.
Stir in the butter and dill.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Can use chopped fresh thyme or parsley instead of the dill.
