Hi everyone! it’s been awhile since my last post, but I’m back with some spring recipe ideas! The weather is warmer… and apparently that means my recipe block is over. I thought I’d start with a sweet side you can bring to any spring picnic. These carrots can be served hot or cold, so you don’t have to worry about them sitting out. They’re also super quick and easy to make.
What you’ll need:
- 1 bunch of medium-sized carrots
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- Fresh or dried thyme
Place the carrots in a large saucepan with a lid. Fill the pan with half an inch of water. Season with salt and pepper. Turn your stove on high or medium-high and let the carrots steam until soft. (This takes roughly 10 minutes, but continue to check every few minutes so they cook to your desired softness.) Add more water if needed. When tender, drain any remaining water. Add the olive oil, honey and a few healthy dashes of thyme (or sprigs if using fresh thyme). Sauté the carrots until glazed.
Enjoy! These carrots will be a hit at any summer party or cookout!
