Maple Glazed Carrots

A festive side dish for holiday meals


2 cups baby carrots (or peeled carrots cut into large chunks)
2 tablespoons light maple syrup
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
1 tablespoon chopped walnuts or pecans
ICB spray or 1 tablespoon light margarine


Cook the carrots until almost done- by either boiling them in a pot of water, steaming in a pyrex dish in an half inch of water or even quicker, put them in a Glad® Simply Cooking™ Microwave Steaming Bag and heat on high for about 2-3 minutes. Spray a small to medium sized pan with ICB or add 1 tablespoon of light margarine and put on medium heat. Add the carrots and sauté for 2-4 minutes. Sprinkle with cranberries and walnuts and heat for another minute. Turn off the heat, pour the maple syrup and toss to evenly coat the carrot mixture and serve.
