Maple Mustard Carrots

Whether cooked or raw, carrots are delicious as a dish or just for munching. But in a nod to the coming spring, the addition of maple syrup makes a delicious dish. Carrots are a rich source of vitamin A, beta-carotene and vitamin C (plus a raw carrot provides about 2 g of fibre).
