Orange Glazed Carrots With Mint

  • 3 lb baby carrots, peeled
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 tbsp shallots, chopped


  1. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over MEDIUM heat. Add the carrots and cook until lightly browned on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper. Add the ginger, garlic, and shalots, cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are softened, 5 - 7 minutes. Add the honey, orange juice, soy sauce and water.
  2. Cover with a round of waxed paper that fits snugly on the vegetables. Cook the carrots slowly on top of the stove, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender and the juices have formed a glaze, 30 - 40 minutes. Garnish with chopped mint.
