Recipe: Slightly Sweet Parslied Carrots

This recipe for Slightly Sweet Parslied Carrots is just a short and quick recipe….. just a pleasant way to dress up carrots. They really are only slightly sweet… enhancing the carrot flavor not overpowering it. We make them fairly frequently as a side dish to weeknight meals since they’re so quick and easy to make… but they look and taste good enough to be the vegetable for a meal served to guests…. even at a holiday dinner.

I used frozen crinkle cut carrots this time… but we usually use fresh Belgian carrots found in the produce section of the grocery store.

This recipe was written for 4 servings ( ½ cup servings per person).

I'll have to try this. Growing up, my mom use to make candied carrots. It was always a treat. This made me think of that. I haven't had them in YEARS!!!

I'll let you know how mine come out.
