These glazed carrots are tender carrot coins simmered in a mixture of brown sugar and butter and topped with a sprinkling of parsley. An easy and inexpensive side dish that’s perfect for a holiday meal or an everyday dinner.
My kids love carrots, especially honey roasted carrots and candied carrots. We also really enjoy simple glazed carrots which take just minutes to put together. This is one of my go-to side dishes!
I always keep a bag of carrots in my fridge. They’re inexpensive, stay fresh for weeks, and you can do so many things with them! One of my favorite ways to prepare carrots is this easy glazed carrots recipe. All you need is 5 ingredients and about 15 minutes and they’re ready to be served.
2 lbs carrots, peeled and cut into sticks
¼ c butter
¼ c packed brown sugar
¼ tsp salt
⅛ tsp ground white pepper
Step 1: In a large saucepan with 1-inch-deep water, add the carrots.
Step 2: Place the saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to medium, and then allow the water to boil.
Step 3: Turn the heat down to low, then cover the pan. Simmer the carrots for about 8 minutes or until soft.
Step 4: Drain the carrots and place them into a clean bowl.
Step 5: In the same saucepan, add the butter and allow it to melt.
Step 6: Add in brown sugar, salt, and white pepper. Stir until well mixed.
Step 7: Put the carrots back in the saucepan and toss until well coated with the glaze. This will take about 5 minutes.
Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
