  • 2 lbs Carrots cut into ½" slices
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • Parsley chopped for garnish


  • In a medium saucepan, add enough water to cover all of the carrots by 2-3" and bring to a boil.
  • Add the carrots, return to a simmer and cook for about 8-10 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain the water and return the carrots to the pan.
  • Add the olive oil, butter, brown sugar, honey and salt to the pot with the carrots and toss to coat. Heat over medium for another 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  • Remove from heat, sprinkle chopped parsley over the top for garnish and serve immediately. Enjoy!
