Simple glazed carrots for a weeknight meal
- Carrots – if whole carrots, peel and cut into sticks or slices; if using baby carrots, cut in half length-wise
- Butter - a couple of teaspoons per serving
- Place carrots in a heavy pot or pan (don’t pile too high; use a bigger pot if necessary)
- Place water half way up the carrots
- Put in a pinch of salt and butter
- Bring to boil
- Turn down to a simmer, cover, and cook carrots until tender
- Take off lid and allow to simmer until water has boiled away and only a butter glaze remains
It’s really that easy. Glazed carrots add flavor, nutrition, and color to your weeknight meal (but you are allowed to cook them on weekends, too).
