A creative customer submitted these sweet carrots with a Savory Spice twist. They're a gorgeous addition to a holiday feast, but they're also quick and easy so they make a great weeknight meal side dish.

Serving Suggestions

Makes a great side for a holiday roast. Serve with seared or grilled chicken breasts or pork chops for a weeknight meal.

Recipe Notes

*If you use the larger garden baby carrots with stems you may need closer to 4 cups by volume; if you buy the packaged baby carrots 2 cups will work just fine. For a dairy-free, vegan, and lower-fat version of this dish, use apple juice or orange juice in place of the butter.

Ingredients

2 cups baby carrots*

2 Tbsp. butter*

2 Tbsp. brown sugar or maple syrup


pinch of salt

Fresh chopped thyme, chives, or parsley for garnish

Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs of choice. Best served warm.
