Recipe Time

30 minutes


1 bunch of carrots (about 1_1.5 lbs)
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey


Saucepan with lid
Mixing bowl


  1. Wash the carrots thoroughly and remove the greens.
  2. Chop the carrots into small bite-sized pieces.
  3. Heat the pan up with the water (covered) until it starts to boil and steam (this will happen very quickly). Once it starts steaming, turn the heat down.
  4. When the carrots are chopped up, add them to the pot with the honey, stir, and cover the lid. Steam the carrots for about 7 minutes, until they are soft and a fork goes through it easily, and until a glaze forms.
  5. Add some salt to taste and serve.

Recipe Notes

Tip: You can try chopping the carrot greens to top the glazed carrots with, or you can use the carrot greens to make pesto at the same time.
