Cooking with frozen vegetables is a great way to shave some time off of food preparation. No washing, chopping, nor blanching needed! Here’s a really simple way to make honey glazed carrots using frozen carrot slices. The recipe is below the video demonstration. Enjoy!
I hope this helps!
Honey Glazed Carrots (Using Frozen Carrots)
Makes 4 Servings
1 (12 oz or 1 lb) bag of frozen carrot slices
2 Tbsp butter*
2 Tbsp honey*
1 Tbsp lemon juice*
Parsley flakes, optional garnish
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and allow it to melt, then add the frozen (not thawed) carrots. Add three tablespoons of water and cover the pan. Allow the carrots to thaw and come to a boil (turning heat up if needed), then lower the heat to a simmer.
Drizzle the carrots with the honey; stir to combine. Cover the pan and allow the carrots to cook until almost as tender as you want them to be, adding more water by the tablespoon, if needed. When they are almost as tender as you like, remove the lid from the skillet and allow the glaze to form and coat the carrots, while stirring often. When the liquid is reduced and they are glazed and cooked to your liking, remove the pan from the heat and drizzle the carrots with the lemon juice. It takes about 7 or 8 minutes total time for the carrots to become crisp-tender. Sprinkle with dried or fresh parsley flakes, if desired. Serve.
*For a lighter, less sweet glaze, use 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of honey. Also, reduce the lemon juice to ½ tablespoon, if desired.
Thank you! This fixed my boring frozen store brand carrots and made them so much better.
