Very nice, quite fast, easy side dish. I don't like carrots that are prepared overly sweet, and this was just right - a touch to bring out the carrots natural sweetness. I used 1/2 cup finely chopped onion, 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil, 1 tsp agave syrup for the sugar and measured 1/4 tsp of salt. The carrots were sliced at about 1/4" to 3/8" each. It easily cooked in 30 minutes, leaving just a subtle buttery glaze. I didn't have parsley on hand, but it was just fine without it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scrape and slice carrot quite thickly.
  2. Peel and chop onion.
  3. Put carrots and onion in saucepan with butter, sugar, salt, pepper and water and cook (I'm assuming at a simmer -- book doesn't state) uncovered until carrots are tender and the water has evaporated.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
