Honey Ginger Glazed Carrots

Honey Ginger Glazed Carrots are a delicious vegetable to serve at any meal. Sometimes I need a super simple veggie dish. I rarely cook carrots. I just eat them raw.

Every once in awhile they are just what I want for dinner. These honey ginger glazed carrots are perfect for every day or for an elegant meal.

Honey Ginger Glazed Carrots are a perfect vegetable for any meal.

To make life easier, you could cook the carrots ahead of time, and then just before serving make the glaze and reheat the carrots. I’m all about making life easier! 🙂

    Its funny you posted this recipe because the first thing my boyfriend ever made for me was honey glazed carrots. At first, I crinkled my nose at the idea, like you I ate them raw, but then once I tasted them – omg! So good.
