  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 8 medium carrots (1 pound)*
  • 2 tablespoons butter (or olive oil for dairy free)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Peel the carrots and slice them diagonally into 1/4-inch rounds (on the bias).
  2. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the carrots and cover. Cook for 4 minutes without stirring.
  3. Remove the lid, stir, and add the 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, brown sugar and honey. Continue to saute uncovered 3 to 4 minutes until the sauce is bubbly and caramel in color and the carrots are crisp tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and add about 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (to taste). Serve immediately.


*Cooking for a crowd? Make a double batch (2 pounds) and boil the carrots instead of sautéing them: this allows you to cook them all at once! See the section above about how to make boiled carrots (scroll up).
