Wow! My allergies have been going crazy lately. If you don’t see me for awhile, I am down for the count. A few of my fruit trees are blooming and while they are pretty, they are driving me crazy!
I love carrots. I think because they are on the sweet side. This recipe just enhances the sweetness of the carrots. It’s very easy ~ cutting the carrots into matchsticks was the most “difficult” part.
Honey and Soy glazed Carrots
2 lbs carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsps honey
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Cook the carrots in boiling water until tender ~ about 8 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
In a large skillet, melt the butter. When melted, stir in the carrots and soy sauce and saute over high heat until the carrots are getting brown in spots ~ about 2 minutes.
Lower heat to medium and stir in honey and stir until all the carrots are glazed ~ about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
Makes 8 servings.
