  • 1 pound Carrots sliced on diagonal
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 Lemon zested (approximately 1 Tablespoon)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt more to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add salt and then carrots and cook until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. The carrots can always be steamed. Drain the carrots and add back to pan with butter and honey. Cook until a glaze coats the carrots about 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
