This is one of our go-to side dishes. It’s especially great with pork or chicken and no matter how pathetic the produce drawer is looking we always have carrots on hand. We hadn’t made it in a while, but when we saw these whiskey glazed carrots and these honey vanilla glazed carrots over at The Driven Cook and these honey glazed carrots with a citrus kick at The Orange Bee, well let’s just say our memory was jogged.
Glazed carrots with mint
- 6 large carrots, sliced thin (about 1/4 inch thickness)
- 1-2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped fine
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Toss in mint and stir to coat. Remove from heat and let sit for maximum minty freshness. Meanwhile, steam carrots until tender, about 5-8 minutes. Set aside. Return skillet to heat and add honey and brown sugar. Stir or whisk to incorporate and allow to thicken, about two minutes. Toss carrots into the mix and stir to coat and warm carrots, about two minutes. Serve warm.
