Festive sides: Balsamic, rice syrup carrots and borettane onions




I couldn’t decide what way I wanted to serve up the dish hence the two different plating options. Oh indecision you cripple me at times…

Day 5: Balsamic carrots with rice syrup and borettane onions


Slice carrots lengthways
Into an oven proof dish.
Sprinkle some thyme and a few chopped garlic cloves
Drizzle olive oil, balsamic vinegar,
rice syrup (agave/maple great too)
Season with salt and pep
Into the oven at 175c for 40-45 min.


Serve up with a sprinkle of parsley and some yummy pickled onions sliced. The borettane onions in balsamic from Marks and Spencers are my very favourite at the moment so yes I cheated and didnt make them from scratch but as I mentioned in my last festive recipe. Christmas eating is all about easy, yummy dishes so shortcuts aaaall the way.
