If I’m going to eat cooked carrots, I need to give them a little help, or else they’re just not that exciting to me. This recipe does the trick.

Dress up your carrots with honey, lemon and raisins.

  • 1 lb. of carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1-2 Tbs. honey
  • 2 Tbs. coconut oil or butter
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
Boil the carrots for about five minutes. Turn off the burner, drain them and put them back in the warm pot. Add the lemon juice, honey and butter/coconut oil to the pot and turn the heat on low. Stir gently for a few minutes, until the carrots are coated and the liquid has reduced a little bit. Remove from heat, stir in the raisins. Salt and pepper to taste.
