Ingredients
  • 1 lb. carrots (or mixture of carrots & other veggies like

  • 2 Tbsp. butter (or olive oil)
  • 1½ Tbsp. honey
  • ½ c. water
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh herb such as thyme, rosemary, or mint (optional)

Instructions
  1. Scrub carrots. Slice carrots into ½ inch diagonals & combine them with butter, honey, & ½ cup water in a large skillet or sauce pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Bring to simmer, lower to medium heat, & cook until carrots are tender (but not mushy) & most of liquid has reduced (10-15 minutes).
