Taste of Home Tuesday: Glazed Carrot Coins

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.
