Getting bored with simple boiled or steamed carrot? Well, try this simple side dish. Honey glazed carrot.

Last week there was a big sale of jumbo BBQ meatball on nearby store. I bought it and served it for dinner together with roasted potatoes. But I still needed another side dish for this dinner and i think glazed carrot would be great. This is my first time i make this side dish and it turned out good. I like the combination of the sweetness of carrot and the taste of honey. I definitely would make this dish again.

Beside, it was very simple and easy to make. Would you like to try? :)

Ingredients :
  • 400-500 grams carrots (preferable baby carrots), peeled.
  • 3 tbs (45 grams) unsalted butter
  • 4 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs lemon juice 
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • salt and ground black pepper
Preparation :
  1. In a medium sauce pan or pot, bring water to boil.
  2. Put the carrots into the pot and sprinkle some salt. Let the carrots cooked for about 10 minutes until they become tender.
  3. Drain the water.
  4. Add butter into the pot and let it melt.
  5. Put the carrots back into the pot
  6. Add honey, lemon juice, brown sugar, and some salt
  7. Stir them well until the carrots are covered well with honey and butter.
  8. Simmer it for about 5-10 minutes and stir it gently once in a while to make sure all the carrots are glazed well.
  9. Turn off the heat, sprinkle some ground black pepper and stir it again.
  10. Serve it immediately.

  1. is it nice for snack? and can i use margarine instead?

    1. yep. it is good for snack as well. Just cut the carrot smaller and adjust the cooking time depend on the size of the carrot. And you can use margarine as well instead of butter. :)

  2. Never try it with honey but maple only lately.......
    tempting to try!
    btw, try to let the butter browned (brown butter) a lil bit beforee using it on this recipe, i guess it give more kicking nice savuory hint into the sweet glazed carrot...
