> 1 orange
> 1/2 (16 oz) bag baby carrots

To a large skillet on medium-high, add the butter, maple syrup, miso, garlic powder, and ¼ cup water. Zest half of the orange into the skillet and squeeze juice from entire orange. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Add the carrots and cook 12–15 min., until carrots are tender and liquid is thick. Drain and let cool.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and 1 tbsp water. Unroll the crescent dough and cut into ½-inch-wide strips. Wrap a strip around each carrot and place on prepared baking sheet. Brush with egg wash. Bake 12–15 min., until golden brown. Serve with the ranch dressing, mustard, or ketchup.
