Glazed carrots are a delicious main dish. This recipe has a wonderful sweet and savory flavor. It is quick to make.
  Parsnips 2 , peeled and cut into sticks
  Carrots 2 , peeled and cut into sticks
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Mustard seeds 1 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Dijon mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Maple syrup 1 Teaspoon

1.Put the vegetables into a steaming basket and rub a pinch of salt over them, then put the basket over a pot of boiling water.
2.When they have been cooking for about 5 minutes, put the mustard seeds into the toaster oven or oven for a few minutes at about 300-350 degrees F, until they are slightly browned. Mix together the oil, mustard and maple syrup in a small bowl, adding the mustard seeds when they are toasted.
3.At this time, the vegetables should be finished cooking, so put them in a baking dish and coat them with the dressing. Put them back in the hot oven for 5-10 minutes, until the glaze thickens slightly.
4.If you prefer sauteeing, toast the mustard seeds in a pan, then saute the vegetables. Add the dressing to the pan for a few minutes and it will thicken slightly. I hope you enjoy this glazed carrots recipe, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes
