Top tip: For sweeter carrots, feel free to add 2tbsp of maple syrup before serving! I like to add maple syrup to steamed carrots and sweet potatoes for extra flavor.
You can store these leftover carrots in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply microwave until desired temperature is reached. You can top with extra fresh herbs or maple syrup before serving.
