Elegant and Affordable: Butter-Glazed Carrots with Parsley

Butter Glazed Carrots with Parsley

Moving right along with the recipes of dishes that I talked about in my Menu Planning blog…

There is a simple elegance about long baby carrots.  Remove most of the leafy parts and leave the base of the green stems for a lovely presentation.

Butter-Glazed Carrots with Parsley

  • 1 pound baby carrots with tops, peeled and leafy part of the top cut off
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Cook carrots in boiling water for 12 minutes or until tender.  Drain well and set aside.

Heat a large skillet over low heat.  Melt butter entirely and add drained carrots.  Stir carrots until well coated with butter.  Add salt and pepper and toss in the pan.  Continue to have burner on for another minute.

Remove from stove and put in serving dish.  Add chopped parsley and stir to coat.

      So do I! Another variation that I like to try depending on what else I’m serving the carrots with is this:
      When the butter is melted, add a little bit of brown sugar. Mix the butter and sugar together and then add the carrots and coat. Don’t add parsley.
