24 Days of Christmas – Maple Glazed Carrots with Thyme

Today we are going to be creating these Maple Glazed Carrots with Thyme. These are a delicious FODMAP friendly, vegan side dish to add to your christmas lunch table.

Just a quick recap that we are six recipes down and I am loving creating these Christmas inspired recipes for you – I hope they are inspiring you to get cooking these holidays.

We have already done Festive Gluten Free Cupcakesย , a Caprese Wreath, a Thyme and Strawberry Gin cocktail, Chocolate Pretzels, as well as a Christmas Tree waffle.ย  Creating a recipe everyday hasn’t been a walk in the park. In fact, last week I tried to do a 6 a day but kept making silly mistakes, so I am now doing one or two a day, which has been a little easier. ๐Ÿคฃ

Ok on to the recipe…
