Glazed Carrots with Thyme

Author: Canadian Living

You can assemble this versatile side dish hours in advance and cook it just before serving. It requires only a few minutes of attention at the end, when the carrots are browning.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 carrot about 1 lb/500 g
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

Cut carrots into 2-inch (5 cm) pieces. In nonstick skillet, combine carrots, 3/4 cup (175 mL) water, oil, thyme, sugar and salt. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Bring to boil; cover and cook over medium heat until carrots are tender and water is evaporated, 10 to 12 minutes. Uncover and cook, shaking pan often, until carrots are glazed and lightly browned, 6 to 10 minutes.
