These honey-glazed carrots are not only good for you, but de-li-cious! Carrots are also one of the best veggies to include our diet because they?re loaded with vitamin A, which is a must for healthy eyesight and skin and they also boost immunity. These honey-glazed carrots went over well with my ?picky eater,? so that?s always a plus. (She actually asked for seconds, which makes me VERY happy!) Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients for Honey-Glazed Carrots

16 oz. of baby carrots, cleaned and trimmed
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 1/2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp. ground ginger (or 1 tsp dill)

Recipe Directions for Honey-Glazed Carrots

  1. In a large saucepan, place all of the baby carrots and then add enough water to cover the carrots completely. Cover the saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer carrots until tender but firm (approximately 5 minutes). Drain carrots and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Stir in honey. Cook over low heat, making sure to stir constantly, until honey dissolves. Add rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.

  3. Add carrots to the skillet mixture. Stir gently until the carrots are coated with the honey glaze. Continue to cook over medium heat until carrots are heated through (appx. 2 minutes), stirring occasionally.

  4. Serve immediately.
