Orange Ginger Glazed Carrots

Easter weekend brought about several side dishes that are certainly worth sharing. This dish is great for any season! It’s refreshing and comforting at the same time. It is also very healthful. Vitamin C with the Orange, Cardiovascular health with the Garlic, great eye sight with the Carrots, and some calming for your tummy with the Ginger! I know my guests appreciated the Ginger before and/or after all the Easter candy!

I served this along side smoked proteins (i.e. turkey, chicken, tofu and ribs). It is delicious when paired with sweet BBQ sauce and baked beans. The carrots provide a natural sweetness. I also pureed this to make baby food ūüėČ It’s also super simple to make.

Amount               Ingredient

3 medium¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†¬† Carrots, peeled, cut in desired shape 1/2″ x 1-2 inches

1 Tablespoon     Garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon¬†¬†¬†¬† Clarified butter or Ghee (you could also use my Fav…Coconut oil for some extra lovin’)

1 Tablespoon     Ginger, fresh grated

1/2 teaspoon     sea salt

1/2 cup                Orange juice, fresh squeezed

 

In a large skillet, heat butter or coconut oil over medium high heat. Add garlic, saute briefly (2 minutes) to draw out aroma. Add carrots, saute for 5 minutes. Add ginger, salt and orange juice, stir. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the carrots are fork tender and orange juice is almost completely reduced. Remove from heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes in order for the sauce to thicken and coat the carrots nicely. Serve.
