  • Serves 8
  • 2 pounds multi color carrots, peeled and trimmed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • Handful walnuts (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • Balsamic Glaze (for drizzling)
In This Recipe
  1. Place carrots in a large saute pan with the water, over high heat.
  2. Add butter, honey, and agave nectar to the pan. Bring to a boil.
  3. Turn heat to med- low, and cover the carrots.
  4. Cook for about 12 -14 minutes, giving the pan a shake once in awhile to let carrots evenly glaze. The butter/agave/honey will start to caramelize as the carrots become softer. Add water if needed.
  5. Turn off heat, and sprinkle a little sea salt over carrots, then drizzle carrots with balsamic glaze.
  6. Garnish with parsley and walnuts, and serve.
