Carrots coated with a yummy butter, brown sugar and ginger sauce. I grew up eating these in Texas. Easy, quick and yummy!-- GREAT way to get kids to enjoy this veggie! If you like a lot of sauce double the sauce ingredients. I posted this less 'saucy' to keep the fat and calories down. The sauce is yummy and great on rice or just on a spoon! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I am so honored that this simple little recipe of mine has been so well received. Thank you all for your reviews!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook carrots until tender- or to desired doneness. (I usually steam them to retain the most flavor).
  2. Melt butter and add brown sugar and ginger, stirring to blend.
  3. Add sauce to carrots and stir to coat.

These are definitely delicious carrots and SO simple to make. I used a bag of baby carrots and just threw all of the ingredients into a pot with 1 cup of water. Then I brought it to a boil, covered the pan and reduced the heat to a simmer. I simmered the carrots covered for 15 minutes and then uncovered for 10 minutes until the sauce was reduced. My 80 year old Dad looked at the plate and said: "CARROTS? YUK!" I told him to just try 'em, and he did.... He then requested seconds!

I also like to make carrots this way but I like to use fresh ginger root, about 1/2 to 1 tsp chopped fine. I OFTEN make them in the microwave, which means you throw the above ingredients into a glass casserole along with about 1 T. water, cover it with plastic wrap, and micro cook for 6 to 8 minutes right when you are ready to serve.

Loved this very simple and elegant dish for Christmas dinner last night! The ginger really made the dish. I microwaved the sauce, but next time I'll do it on the stove. Everyone loved these! Thanks for a great recipe!
