Lemon Glazed Carrots

"This makes a perfect side dish for a Turkey dinner. It's the ONLY way I can get my in-laws to eat carrots. I prefer to steam the carrots, but you can boil them if you don't have a steamer. You can also slice regular carrots if you don't have baby carrots. If you don't have a lemon zester tool, you can use the fine side of a grater."

These are so easy and they go so well with just about any kind of meat, fish or poultry. I am making them for Easter to have with ham and a few other sides. They really add something special to our meals and my family loves them!


Review by KitchenGuru

Good side dishes are hard to come by if you want added flavor and better taste than plain old veggies. These carrots are deelicious!

Great recipe I made it for dinner tonight with pork chops, yummy carrots that we loved, thank you


Review by Classy87

I made these for our Thanksgiving dinner with my brother and family yesterday. These carrots were delicious and the dish was empty at the end of the dinner. A new addition to our holiday dinner, and so easy when you are trying to make a lot of things on the stove at once. Thank you Axe!

When my daughter will eat her veggies I am really happy, and she ate all of the ones I gave her and asked for more. A new favorite for all of us here now and we will have them many times from here on in!
