Honey Glazed Carrots
Recipe type: Side dish
  • 2 bunches carrots (about 1 ½ pounds)
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • Fresh thyme, to garnish
  1. Wash and peel the carrots. Cut into rounds, sticks, or leave whole – depending on how you want the dish to look. (If leaving whole, you might want to cut the bigger ones in half lengthwise)
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the carrots, water, oil, garlic, and honey. Bring to a boil, and then turn the heat down and simmer, covered, until carrots are just tender (about 10-25 minutes, depending on the size of the carrots.)
  3. Remove the lid and return to a boil, until the water cooks off.
  4. Serve hot or warm, garnished with the thyme. If desired, spoon any remaining glaze from the pot onto the carrots.
