A sunny side dish that’s done in about 10 minutes – and will brighten the day of kids or anyone: Grapefruit Honey Glazed Carrots.
Yield:4-6 servings 1x
1 pound baby carrots
2 teaspoons butter
1 grapefruit – zested to produce 1/4 teaspoon grated peel and squeezed to make 1/4 cup juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon honey
Garnish: parsley (optional)
Place carrots and 1/4 cup water in a microwave-safe-dish and cook on HIGH power for about 5 minutes until tender; stirring halfway through cooking. OR Place carrots and 1/2 cup water in a small pot on stove and cook over medium-high heat for about 5-6 minutes until tender. Drain (but don’t dump the water – it’s deliciously sweet carrot-flavored water – and contains vitamin C!)
While carrots are cooking, melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in grapefruit peel, juice, cornstarch and honey. Cook until thick – about 1-2 minutes – stirring.
Lower heat to low and add warm carrots; stir to coat carrots with glaze.
