These bright and sweet glazed carrots can take pride of place at any Thanksgiving table. Or Christmas. Topped with Protein Flakes and a sprinkle of cranberries, they’ll catapult themselves to the culinary highlight of the night!
Preheat the oven to 175° C.
Cut the carrot greens off of the peeled carrots. Slice the carrots in half. Place on a sheet of parchment paper on top of a baking tray.
In a small bowl, mix the dried cranberries with the orange juice and zest.
Dice the garlic. In another small bowl, make a marinade: Mix the garlic with the olive oil, maple syrup, harissa paste, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Brush the carrots with the marinade. Put in the oven for 20-25 minutes to caramelize.
Meanwhile, toast the Protein Flakes in a dry pan over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes.
Arrange the caramelized glazed carrots on the dish you plan to present them on. Garnish with the orange-soaked cranberries and toasted Protein Flakes.
