Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots: French Fridays with Dorie

This week I finally got around to making my carrot dish and I'm so glad I did!  I actually served them with the mushroom lasagna that I made last night. The carrots finished quite a bit quicker than the lasagna, even though I started the lasagna much earlier, so I put the carrots on the table with a little piece of foil over them.  My little Turkey kept coming over to the table and swiping carrots. By the time dinner started, he had put a decent sized dent in the carrots!  My boy loves to eat ... I should start a savings account now for his teenage years!!!



The carrots were yummy and were very easy to prepare.  I used ginger, garlic, onion, chicken broth, and cardamom to season them.  I have to admit that I had never cooked with cardamom before last night, but I'm glad I searched it out at the store and tried it.  The smell of it reminds me of cinnamon gum. :)  The only change I'd make next time would be to cut some of the carrots into pieces that are a little smaller because the fatter ones didn't cook evenly.

Pin It!

Mmm...they look so good. I'm glad that the kids enjoyed them - I love to hear children eating vegetables! :) I still have yet to make these - great idea to pair with lasagna.

Some of us have our own little (and not so little) Turkeys swiping the delicious nibbles:)
Your carrots look really good. I have to make them next week, and I am so relieved that they are easy and not time-consuming.
