Dijon Glazed Carrots


Raise your hand if you need to whip up a satisfying accompaniment for your next holiday get together. Glazed with a perfect balance of flavors, this nourishing side dish is always a real crowd-pleaser at my Shabbat dinner table. A tiny bit of maple syrup and some dijon adds nice flavor complexity, while my Vegitude POWER Spice blend cranks up the antioxidant value of these gems, making these carrots a standout in both taste and nutritional power. A must try that’s perfect for any festive gathering!

This simple, power-spiced recipe (and 100+ more) can be found in my newly released, best-selling book, SpiceRack, which is currently offered as a bundle along with our carefully crafted line of power spice nutrition blends. Snap them up before they’re gone!
