This is a delicious and very easy recipe using frozen carrots. You could easily use fresh carrots simply by adding a little more water as they cook. Below is a video demonstration of making this dish. The recipe is below the video.
Easy Maple Glazed Carrots with Dill
Makes 4 Servings
1 (12 oz) pkg of frozen carrot slices
1 Tbsp butter*
1 Tbsp maple syrup**
1 to 2 tsp dried dill leaves OR 1-1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp water (see tip below)
Melt butter in a skillet over just above medium heat. Add the frozen carrot slices and drizzle with maple syrup. Sprinkle with dill, salt and pepper. Stir, then cover the skillet with the lid. Occasionally stir to break up the frozen lumps of carrot slices and return the lid to the pan. When the slices are thawed, add the water, cover and continue to cook until the carrots are almost as tender as you like them to be. Remove the lid and allow the remaining water to evaporate. Stir to coat the carrots with the remaining mixture and serve. The entire process takes no more than 5 minutes.
Tip: Make sure the pan does not get dry before the carrots or done, so they don’t burn. Add more water if needed.
* Add more butter if more richness is desired.
** If you prefer (or don’t have maple syrup available), use honey, brown sugar, or any sweetener you choose.
