Here is a tasty vegetable side dish that goes well with SO many main dishes! When I was growing up, my mom would sometimes make cooked carrots that simmered in brown sugar and butter. Oh, they were soooo good! I mean, no wonder! Sugar and butter? Yeah . . . that explains it all.
Needless to say, they definitely weren’t the healthiest, despite that they were a vegetable side dish. Well, this recipe brought those childhood memories to life. While this is a much healthier way to prepare the carrots, you’ll find that the sweetness of the carrots is intensified and boring carrots are made exciting. We gobbled these up when I made them and I plan to put them in the vegetable rotation. After all, my sweet toddler does have carrots at the top of her favorite food list. And, now we do too!
