If you need to get your serving of vegetables in for the day, this is a great way to do it. It's also a perfect way to disguise vegetables from the kids too! Either way, this burger makes a perfect weekend breakfast for two, or even a main dish.

Best glazed carrots

There are many ways to glaze carrots, but this is the best recipe you will find, I promise. Refreshing, fresh, slight sweetness with a little tang. Perfect side dish to any protein. Side note: cutting carrots on the diagonal helps to create uniform thickness and size which is better for uniform tenderness for each carrot, and it looks cool too! You can use baby carrots as well, but may take a little longer to cook.

Ingredients

  • 6 large carrots, cut diagonally
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  1. In a large fry pan, bring carrots, broth, honey and salt to a boil, cover, and boil until carrots are slightly tender (about 5 minutes).
  2. Remove cover, and continue to boil until liquid is almost all evaporated.
  3. Remove from heat, add butter and sugar, and toss to coat.
  4. Drizzle with lemon juice, and serve.
  5. Enjoy!
