Honey and Soy Glazed Carrots

1 Comment

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.

Carrots

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.

Honey Glazed Carrots

I love carrots ~ raw OR cooked.  This recipe is super easy and goes with almost any main dish.  I bought carrots with the tops still on and left a little bit on the top and I used 2 bunches.   The carrots are sweet ~ but not too sweet. I served them on Easter and they were delicious with ham.

Honey Glazed Carrots

1 lb carrots
2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add salt and then the carrots and cook until tender, 5 to 6 minutes.

Drain the carrots and add back to pan with butter, honey and lemon juice. Cook until a glaze coats the carrots, about 5 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper and garnish with parsley.

Makes 4-6 servings.
