Need a heart-healthy side dish this Valentine’s Day? I recently tried (and loved) Taste of Home’s Contest-Winning Glazed Carrot Coins Recipe (below). These tender, moist carrots are sure to bright a winter night while providing beta-carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A, and vitamin C. I swapped butter for canola oil to add some healthful fats, and left out the salt. Frozen carrots made this dish super easy to prepare. This was a keeper for sure.
2 tablespoons of butter or canola oil
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of orange juice
1/4 teaspoon of salt, optional
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 medium carrots cut into 1/2 slices, or an equal amount of frozen carrots
In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Add the carrots; cover, and cook for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Makes 4 servings.
I am sharing this as part of a blog hop with some of Taste of Home’s other volunteer field editors. Please check out their sites and the recipes they are making this week at the links below. I will draw a name at random (U.S. residents only, no purchase necessary) from those who share a comment for a chance to win a Taste of Home cookbook. The winner will be announced Saturday, February 16, 2019.
