Prep Time 00:05 Cook Time 00:21 Total Time 00:26 Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 2 pound carrots, peeled and sliced on the bias about ¼” thick
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, coconut oil or olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaky sea salt, to garnish

Directions

  1. Heat a large pan (at least 12 inches), over medium high heat and add oil.
  2. Once hot, place carrots cut side down and sear for 3 minutes, until the carrots start to caramelize. Give them a good shake and let them sear again for an additional 3 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and stir the pan. 
  3. Carefully add 1/2 cup water and cover pan with tight fitting lid and cook for 7 minutes over medium heat. Uncover and reduce heat the medium low and continue to cook until the water has evaporate and the carrots are cooked though. If the water has reduced before the carrots have cooked, add a tablespoon more water at a time until they have cooked through.
  4. Once water has reduced, add butter (or dairy free oil) and honey and stir well and continue to cook until the carrots are glazed and the honey is bubbling, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/4 teaspoon large flaky sea salt.
