What To Do

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the oil, vinegar, maple syrup, and the pepper flakes. Toss in the carrots and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Toss until the carrots are all evenly coated. Place the carrots on a large baking sheet, making sure to evenly distributed and not overcrowded.

Roast the carrots in the oven until they are tender and a fork easily can be put through them. They will look slightly charred, and this should all take about 30 minutes. Garnish the carrots with fresh parsley before serving.
