Glazed Carrots

This is a quick, nutritious side-dish using a fridge staple. Great last minute veggie.


  • 3 medium carrots, cleaned, sliced into 1/4″ rounds (.5cm)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs Dijon-style mustard


  • Heat butter, oil in a small skillet.
  • Add carrots, turn heat to medium low, cover and cook for 10 – 12 minutes, until carrots are tender.
  • Add brown sugar, mustard, thyme, and stir until sugar is melted and carrots are coated.
  • Serve.


You could use honey in place of the brown sugar.
