Guest Post – Honey Garlic Carrots

I have never been a huge fan of cooked carrots. They’re ok but they’re not my favourite – until now! These Honey Garlic Carrots are amazingly good. You’re going to want to try them tonight. Thanks, One Hungry Dude!

A few weeks ago, I finished pulling carrots out of our backyard vegetable garden. There's something about the fresh taste of homegrown carrots that is so satisfying. Perhaps it's the knowledge that I've successfully tended to several plants for an entire summer; or maybe the fragrant aroma and sweet and distinct flavour of fresh carrots. Either way, I prefer a simple recipe for fresh carrots — let the vegetables 'speak for themselves'. All they really need are a few complimentary ingredients to really enhance the flavour.

Honey Garlic Carrots
• Salt
• About 2 Cups Carrots, chopped into large chunks
• 2 Tbsp Margarine
• 2 Tbsp Honey
• 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
• Sprinkle of Garlic Powder
• Freshly Ground Black Pepper
• 1/4 cup chopped Parsley

In a medium-sized pot, bring water to a boil. Add salt and then carrots, and cook until tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Drain the carrots. Place them back in the pan, and add the margarine, honey, lemon juice and garlic powder. Cook until a glaze coats the carrots, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with parsley.

This recipe serves four people.
