Maple Mustard & Dill Glazed Carrots

  • Author: Alaena Haber
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x



  • 6 large carrots
  • 1 tablespoon cooking fat of choice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon or honey mustard
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided


  1. Peel carrots and slice in half widthwise and then against in half lengthwise to make long spears about 4 inches long and 1/3-inch thick. It’s best to ensure all pieces are even thickness, so slice any thicker carrots to match the thinner ones.
  2. Heat cooking fat in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. If using a non-stick skillet, heat over medium-high meat.
  3. Add carrots to the pan and spread out over the bottom. Cook for 5 minutes without disturbing until the bottoms turn a light golden brown. Toss carrots, season with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes until tender.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Turn the heat to medium-low and pour the maple mustard sauce over the carrots. Cook, continuously tossing the carrots for 2 to 3 more minutes, until the glaze has caramelized.
  5. Transfer to a serving dish and serve warm.
