I'm trying to up the amount of veggies we eat - and I found this super yummy recipe for carrots. Plus it looks pretty on the table...
start to finish: 30 minutes
6 cups water
3lb carrots with tops trimmed to 2 inches, peeled or scrubbed
2 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp honey
1 tsp finely shredded lemon peel
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1. In heavy skillet bring water to boiling add carrots. Return to boiling then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer covered for 8 - 10 minutes until carrots are tender; drain carrots and pat dry.
2. For glaze, in skillet stir butter, honey, lemon peel, red pepper and 1/2 tsp salt over medium heat until butter is melted and glaze bubbles. Add carrots; toss 2 minutes. In serving bowl drizzle carrots with glaze and sprinkle with additional red pepper.
