Glazed Carrots

glazed carrots

I love figuring out new side dish recipes. I have had glazed carrots before, but never had attempted them myself. They are super easy and fast. Also I have never seen my kids eat so many vegetables in one sitting. They loved this side dish. I think when you add a little bit of sweetness to a vegetable it is more of an appetizing treat for kids. I think there are so many ways to get your kids to eat their veggies, but I want to hear what you all do as moms to get your kids to eat their veggies. What are your tricks? Can’t wait to hear and try them out on my kiddos.

Glazed Carrots

2 1/2 cups of sliced carrots

1/4 cup of brown sugar

1/4 cup of butter

1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice


Slice all your carrots. I used baby carrots because that is what I had. Slice them at an angle. This makes them easier to slice and thinner. Place the sliced carrots in skillet with about an inch of water, and bring to boil. Boil until carrots are tender. Drain the carrots if there is any water left and set aside. In the same skillet melt butter, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice together. Add the carrots to the glaze and cook until bubbling. Remove from heat and serve as an side with any main dish.
