HyVee Honey Glazed Carrots
Danny picked up this recipe card at HyVee one day, and asked if we could prepare it for dinner. It was so simple, I couldn't really refuse. This is also the first time I needed to create a tag for, "low fat". I can't decide if that's funny, or appalling.
You Will Need:
1 lb. carrots, peeled and cut into half and then crosswise into 2 inch pieces. I didn't do that, I cut matchsticks.
1 tbsp. honey
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg or coriander (I used coriander)
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons water
Chopped parsley if you're feeling particularly fancy
Place carrots in a small saucepan and cover with water. Cover with lid. Simmer about ten minutes, or until tender. Drain.
In the same pan, combine the honey, butter, spice, salt and water. Bring to a boil and cook about a minute. Return carrots to pan and cook another minute, tossing carrots to coat. Garnish to your heart's content with parsley.
