Honey Glazed Carrots with Thyme


I needed a simple side dish to serve alongside Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes. A quick check of the fridge confirmed my hopes that carrots would be in the crisper drawer. A quick stay in the steamer basket and within 15 minutes the side dish was ready to serve.

6 - 8 carrots, peeled and trimmed and cut on the diagonal
salt and pepper to taste
1 - 2 T. butter
1 T. honey
1/8 t. dried thyme

In a medium saucepan, place a steamer basket and add enough water to reach bottom of steamer basket. Bring to a boil over high heat and add sliced carrots. Cover and lower heat to medium high and let carrots steam until tender 10 - 12 minutes.

Remove carrots from steamer basket and place in serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in butter so that it begins to melt and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with thyme and serve immediately.
