Orange Glazed Carrots in a Pan
Simple but delicious Orange Glazed Carrots that will definitely make your Christmas dinner plate more flavoursome and vibrant with colour! Cooked in a pan on the stove, this is a great recipe when you're short on oven space cooking up a storm on a Christmas day! Glazed with sweet and sour orange and brown sugar syrup, these Christmas Carrots are a perfect sidekick to turkey!
- 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!
