  1. Place carrots into a large skillet with high sides. Fill a pan with enough cold water to mostly cover the carrots. Sprinkle with salt, cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer with the lid still on until carrots are fork tender (but not falling apart tender), 12-15 minutes.

  2. Drain and place carrots back into the hot pan. Place the pan over medium heat and add in butter, maple syrup, cashews, and parsley flakes. Cook 2-3 minutes or until all carrots are glazed with butter and syrup.

  3. Serve and enjoy!
