Honey Garlic Glazed Carrots

Monday, April 1, 2019
If you follow me on social media, then you saw my posts where I shared that I recently went to the Farmer’s Market with my family. Now that it’s officially Spring, the Farmer’s Market have all of their best produce out and I got a whole heaping of carrots.

Honey Garlic Glazed Carrots

Carrots are one of those vegetables that can become easily addicting. It’s such a simple side dish, and you cannot go wrong with steaming up some carrots to have on the side. Or, just using them as a snack and dipping into some ranch dressing.

But because we got so many carrots, I had to get creative in finding new ways to add in this vibrant orange vegetable.

What Did I Use?

I’ve seen a few recipes roast their carrots, but ya’ll know I’m lazy. I didn’t have time for that. I found that I was able to get a similar texture for these carrots by steaming them first and THEN adding into a frying pan. To me, it was quicker.

I used about four large carrots, honey, cinnamon, garlic powder, a dash of salt, and parsley for topping. I found that adding the cinnamon balanced the garlic-y flavors perfectly. I’ve been quite experimental with mixing different spices together lately, and this one did not disappoint.

After I steamed my carrots, I dumped them into a large frying pan and covered them nicely using the ingredients I noted above. I stirred the carrots so that everything was evenly coated. I wanted to be sure that they got a nice sticky glaze over them.

4 Large carrots
1/4 cup water
4 tbsp Honey
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Salt
Parsley to garnish

1. Take your carrot stalks and clean thoroughly. If not organic, you can skin them with a peeler
2. Chop into 1 inch small rounds. Try not to cut too thick or it will take longer to cook
3. Add carrots to a pot with little water to steam. Allow carrots to steam for 10-15 minutes or until carrots are slightly tender
4. Once carrots are tender add in honey, butter, garlic, cinnamon, and salt while stirring carrots so that it is evenly covered
6. Allow carrots to simmer for another 10-15 minutes until sauce begins to thicken and creates a glaze. Be sure to stir occasionally so that glaze doesn’t stick to pan
7. Remove carrots from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes for flavors to settle before serving

If you prefer, you can also prepare this in the oven by simply adding to an oven dish. You can create your glaze on stovetop and pour over top once carrots have roasted in the oven
