My cousin brought this dish to Thanksgiving Dinner. I loved it & had to have the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the carrots in water, covered, for about 8 minutes. (I used frozen sliced carrots & followed the directions on the package.) Drain the carrots.
  2. Put the butter, honey, lemon juice & ginger in a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Continue until all butter is melted and all ingredients are combined.
  3. Put the carrots into a 1 1/2 to 2 quart greased dish. Pour the sauce over the carrots & stir. (May refrigerate at this point for baking later.).
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle almonds over carrots just before serving.

This was a very simple recipe to make, which is definitely a plus!! The dish turned out a little to sweet for me. My husband on the other hand loved it. Next time I might just cut down on the honey so that they aren't as sweet. Thanks for the recipe!!

I scaled for 2 serves but made enough carrots (12 oz) for 3 and we all loved the sweetness with the crunch of the almonds (though when making again I would toast the almonds), thank you CaramelPie, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

I had a dinner party last night. My friend, who is an excellent cook, ( A+) asked me, (who is a C to C- cook), for my recipe for these carrots. I was so proud.!!! They were so easy to prepare. I used my salad shooter to slice the carrots. I cooked 1½ pounds of carrots in the microwave for only 5 minutes, with a little water for stem. I drained them on a paper towel before adding the rest of the ingredients. All my guests ate them!
