  • 2 lbs carrots
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¼ stick butter
  • ⅓ cup agave
  • ⅓ cup chipotle puree
  • 2 Tbsp salt

| Preparation | Peel the carrots and prepare a pot of water that will hold them. Boil for 8 to 10 minutes until they are fork-tender. Remove, drain and cool in ice water. Remove carrots when cool and pat dry.

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Prepare the glaze by adding the cream and butter in a small pot and simmer until butter melts. Add agave, chipotle and salt; reduce the glaze by half. Let the glaze cool for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken. Brush the carrots with ¾ of the glaze and place on a baking sheet. Roast the carrots for 15 minutes and remove. Place on serving platter and top with remaining glaze.
