Glazed Carrots

glazed carrots

One impressive dish without much work. These vegetables are colorful and tasty. This side can be dressed up for a holiday dinner or done simply as a compliment to any meal. I listed my basic recipe but you can easily alter the flavor by adding a squeeze of lemon or chopped ginger.



  • 1lb of baby carrots, rinsed clean
  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar
  • dash of salt



1. Steam carrots & cook until you can just pierce with a fork.

2. Soften butter, mix cinnamon, & brown sugar. I didn’t list the amount because I feel that you should sweeten according to your taste.  I would start off with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of sugar & add more to alter the taste.

3.  After you drain your carrots, move to a heat proof bowl and top with soften butter & dash of salt. Use a spoon to coat the carrots. Serve Warm and Enjoy.
