Exact Ingredients (+ Possible Substitutes)

To make Maple Dijon Glazed Carrots, start with 2 lbs high-quality roasted carrot ingredients. The carrots should be either well-scrubbed or peeled. This is up to you.

  • Olive oil – Enhances the carrots’ natural flavors.
  • Pure maple syrup – Adds sweetness. You can use honey or agave nectar as a substitute for maple syrup.
  • Dijon mustard – Gives a tangy kick. Or try other Dijon mustard alternatives like grainy mustard for change.

Make sure to have these spices ready for your carrots:

  • Fresh parsley
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Add pomegranate seeds and pine nuts for a different twist. Or mix your maple dijon glaze with rice vinegar, soy sauce, and white miso paste.

Decide whether to peel your carrots or not. Trying different things can make your Maple Dijon Glazed Carrots a favorite.


To make tasty roasted carrots, first, preheat your oven to 400°F. This will help them cook well and get a sweet outside. Cut your carrots into 1-inch pieces while the oven warms up. You can leave the skin on for a natural look. Or, peel them for a smoother feel.

Now, in a big bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard. Add some parsley and your favorite spices to the glaze. Stir the carrots in this mix until they’re all coated. This makes sure they taste just right.

Then, put parchment paper on a sheet pan. Spread your carrots in one layer on the pan. Add any extra glaze on top for more flavor. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Flip them once in the middle. They should be soft, sweet, and taste of Dijon when done.

You can change this recipe to fit what your family likes. For instance, cutting the carrots smaller means they cook faster. Or, sprinkle on some herbs for your own twist. With these simple steps, you’ll have a tasty veggie dish. It’s easy to make and everyone will enjoy it.
