Almost like dessert Honey and Brown Sugar Glazed Carrot Pennies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Anu_N

Honey-brown sugar glaze enhances the natural sweetness of carrots. Flecks of parsley add color and flavor. This recipe is sweet enough to be served as a healthy desert! But I don't suppose the kids would comply... :-) This is a good way to have your "dessert" and eat "healthy" too!

I love carrots, but sometimes they can be a bit boring and you run out of ways to prepare them. This is a wonderful change! I loved the sweetness of them. I had one lonely green bell pepper in the refrigerator so I chopped it up and added it to the carrots. Thank you for sharing this.
