Honey Glazed Carrots

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Honey Glazed Carrots are absolutely delightful. Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables. Using crinkle-cut or baby carrots in recipes provide so much texture and crunch for soups, casseroles, or salads. Not to mention carrots are high in beta-carotene and other antioxidants that are so good for your health.

Normally, this recipe is cooked on the stove top, but because I wanted to have them ready when I got home from church yesterday, I decided to try making this great recipe in the oven so I could cook it along with my King Ranch Chicken casserole.

I suppose I could have pre-made the Honey Glazed Carrots and heated them up quickly in the microwave or on the stove when I got home, but it sure was nice having these already ready to go. They turned out just as tasty as if I had made them on the stove top, too.

Honey Glazed Carrots is an incredibly easy and delicious dish you can prepare in a snap. The sweet flavors of honey and brown sugar glaze the carrots and provide such a tasty flavor. This recipe is kid friendly, too. Many kids will learn to enjoy carrots after trying this sweet recipe.

I found this recipe years ago shortly after we married in the Pillsbury Cookbook, 1972 edition. It has only 5 ingredients and is a wonderful way to serve carrots. If you need a quick way to throw together a side dish for dinner, a special meal, or even as a holiday dish, consider giving this Honey Glazed Carrots recipe a try. You won’t be disappointed. We love this quick and easy recipe, and we believe you will too.

When I initially posted this recipe in February 2013, I was still using an iPhone for a camera, so the pictures were not the greatest. I also baked the recipe rather than making it on top of the stove, which is what I usually do. I remade this recipe (stove-top method) for a family in our Sunday school class who recently underwent bereavement (April 2015).

Because this recipe is gluten free, it was a perfect accompaniment to the all the gluten free food I provided (because she has Celiac’s Disease). If you need the recipe to be vegan, simply substitute coconut oil for the butter in the recipe. We’ve always enjoyed this side dish and it’s great for holiday fare, too.

Here I’ve served the carrots. You will need to stir well before dishing out each serving to make sure the carrots get plenty of the butter/brown sugar/honey mixture.
