Ginger Glazed Carrots are an elegant, yet easy to make vegetable that Toby and Marvin LOVE (most kids do, too… could it be the sugar?).

Adding carrots to the brown sugar glaze.

For times when you are looking to add a pop of color to your plate, nothing beats glazed carrots – especially if you are serving beef. They look beautiful plated and also hold up well in a chaffing dish – perfect for a holiday buffet. And, this recipe can be made completely in advance, which is a nice bonus. ┬áSimply reheat on the stove or in the microwave a few minutes before serving. Easy and elegant – gotta love that!

  2. OUTSTANDING RECIPE I steamed my carrots and also 1 chopped sweet potato. When done added them to the butter sugar sauce and also added 3 T. of ginger because I love ginger. Had that with chix strips. Also 12 grain slice of bread with coconut oil the kind that spreads like butterrrrrrrrrrr
    P.S. I also sprinkle ginger powder on my coffee grounds for a diff. flavor you can add any spice when brewing it up. ENJOY

    • Hi, Chacha! I am so glad you liked the carrot recipe. It is so easy it is almost ridiculous! I love your addition of the sweet potato, too. I agree with you about the ginger… never too much! Thanks for sharing your great ideas! Mary
