  • 500 g carrots peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 orange zested and juiced
  • 20 g brown sugar
  • a small bunch of parsley (optional)


  • Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the carrots and fry on high heat for 4-5 minutes until starting to brown.
  • Add the brown sugar, orange zest and orange juice. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Reduce the heat and carry on cooking for another 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally. Your carrots should soften but still have a bit of crunch. If your carrot chunks are very large, you may need to cook for a bit longer.
  • Sprinkle some finely chopped parsley on top and serve!


These Glazed Carrots pair very well with Christmas Turkey and Ham.
