A sunny side dish that’s done in about 10 minutes – and will brighten the day of kids or anyone.
Need a quick side for chicken, fish, pork or even #MeatlessMonday? How about a dish that everyone at the table – including kids and the husband – will adore?
With only five ingredients, these sweet, savory baby carrots may be your new favorite go-to recipe.
And the best part: It’s made with sunny citrus…which we eat all day during dreary winter!
Grapefruit is by far my favorite citrus. Instead of slicing it in half and digging out bites, I like to peel and section grapefruit just like an orange. And a big pink grapefruit totally cures my mid-afternoon slump – thanks to that zippy tart-sweet taste.
In terms of nutrition, a medium (3 3/4-inch diameter) grapefruit contains:
- Over 70% of the daily value for vitamin A – a powerful antioxidant
- About 200% of the daily value for vitamin C – another antioxidant to help boost the immune system
- About 10% of the daily value for potassium
- 4 grams of fiber!
- About 95 calories
Now back to this carrot dish. My kids have unfortunately decided that they’re tired of raw baby carrots + ranch dressing. This is very sad! Because that was like the easiest veggie to throw on the table – ever. But cooked baby carrots are a close second: Easy peasy. And my kids love the natural sweetness.
And by cooking these carrots in just a small amount of water in the microwave or on the stove, the majority of nutrients are preserved. Plus ==> There’s only ONE pot to wash.A sunny side dish that takes only 10 minutes: Grapefruit Honey Glazed Carrots via @tspcurry Click To Tweet
Enjoy this sunny orange dish – as you wish for just a bit more sun.
Do you peel and section grapefruit? Or do you only eat them cut in half?
