Glazed Carrots

This easy recipe for glazed carrots makes a nice side dish for a family dinner or holiday occasion. Serves 4.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 3 cups carrots, chopped on the diagonal into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon five spice powder (available in the spice section of most supermarkets or in Chnese/Asian markets)


Wash and chop the carrots. Combine the water, soy sauce and sugar and set aside.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the carrots.
Add the five-spice powder, stirring in with the carrots.
Add the water, soy sauce and sugar mixture. Bring to a boil.
Lower the heat, cover and gently simmer the carrots until they are tender and pierce easily with a fork (about 10 minutes).
Remove the lid. Turn the heat up to high and cook the carrots, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is burned off (5 to 7 minutes). Serve hot.

I normally do not like cooked carrots, but this recipe is fantastic. It was very easy to make, tasted great and my husband and I ate the whole thing......I even kept the leftover sauce to use on brussel sprouts tomorrow.
