I am always on the look out for simple side dishes to spruce up our meal times around here. My kids eat so much food I am forced to make side dishes along with our main meal. Especially when a meal has a lot of meat like the delicious meatballs from yesterday. I need a way to fill my kids up and give them a little more nutrients and good old’ healthy stuff 😉 These carrots are my solution several times a month as our favorite side dish. These are not your everyday steamed carrots. They actually have flavor…and lots of it at that. They are sauteed in butter, garlic, rosemary and a little sweetness from orange juice and brown sugar. Together it makes for a delicious combination and a great way to get your kids to actually eat their vegetables! Enjoy!

  1. Dice the shallot or red onion into small pieces. Place the butter in a saute pan with a lid. Turn the heat to medium-high heat and add the onions and garlic to the pan. Saute until the onions are tender. Add the carrots to the pan and stir. Add the brown sugar, orange juice concentrate, rosemary and some salt & pepper. Stir together and then place the lid on the pan. Let the carrots cook on medium-low heat for 7-10 minutes, or until they are tender. Once the carrots are cooked through, but still firm, sprinkle with fresh or dried parsley for color.
