Agave Glazed Carrots


Recipe: Agave Glazed Carrots

Summary: Carrots with a light sweet glaze and some bright flavor that is so simple to do.


  • 5 mediums sized carrots, peeled and sliced (2 cups)
  • 1 tangerine, juiced (1/4 cup/seeds removed)
  • 1 teaspoon zest from the tangerine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon blue agave nectar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Chopped flat-leaf parsley as optional garnish


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a simmer.
  2. Cover and cook at a simmer for 5 – 7 minutes, until the carrots are quite tender.
  3. Uncover and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the liquid has evaporated and the carrots are lightly glazed, remove from the heat.
  4. Taste carefully for salt and pepper (the sugar from the nectar can burn!)
  5. Serve immediately, or take off the heat, cover and set aside for a few minutes until ready to serve.
