As a vegetarian, when I make dinner and see carrots on the menu, it’s always a little weird. Carrots are often thought of as plain vegetables or used as an ingredient in stews and side dishes. You might have tried roasted or steamed carrots before, but have you considered trying glazed carrots?
It’s always important to remember that simple is best when dealing with fresh ingredients. If the great taste weren’t enough, carrots are packed with vitamins A and K and have a good deal of fiber. Try this elegant side dish and see what I mean.

You won’t even need a skillet – just some aluminum foil and a stovetop – and they will come out perfectly cooked every time. Plus, they are super easy to make, so your little one can help you out while you get on with more important things. Glazed carrots are a great way to get your kids to eat their vegetables.

Bonus glazing method
Glazing is a method used to add a decorative finish to food. It is often used on vegetables, fruits, and desserts. There are a few different methods that can be used to glaze food. The most common method is to use a pan with a lid. The food is placed in the pan and then the lid is placed on top of the pan. Heat is then applied to the food and the glaze is poured over it. In addition, another method is to use a microwave oven. The food is placed in the oven and then the glaze is poured over it.

One of the best things about carrots is that they can be served with so many different things. Whether you want to make them into a simple side dish or use them as the star of a more elaborate meal, there are plenty of ways to enjoy them. Here are some ideas for what to serve carrots with:
- Raw carrots on a bed of greens.
- Roasted carrots topped with a creamy sauce.

Tips for making successful glazed carrots
If you’re looking for a delicious way to show your kids that vegetables can be just as fun as sweets, try serving them glazed carrots. These carrots are simple to make, and they are sure to please. Follow these tips for success:
- Start by boiling your carrots until tender. Be sure to add enough water so that the carrots are covered; this will help prevent them from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
- Once the carrots are cooked, remove them from the pot and let them cool slightly. This will help make slicing them easier.
- Next, preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Slice the carrots into thin pieces approximately 1/2 inch thick. Try to avoid making them too thick, or they will not cook evenly in the oven.
- Finally, spread some melted butter on top of each slice of carrot before placing them on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Enjoy!
