Glazed Baby Carrots Dijon

So simple to prepare and really is quite delicious!

Glazed Baby Carrots Dijon

This is my favorite of all the glazed carrot recipes I have ever prepared, and it actually does have a *glaze* on it, not some sauce that just runs off. Not too sweet and the Dijon flavor pairs perfectly. I think you will like these as much as I do!
Just to clarify, since more than one person has asked me about the carrots, these are heirloom carrots, which came in orange, yellow, white and purple. They aren’t parsnips or anything like that. It really doesn’t make a big deal of difference in the recipe, as any type carrot will work. ~s

    Such a quick and simple side dish. I nuked my carrots for about 3 1/2 minutes, then added the Dijon/honey sauce. Yum. Thanks for another winner, Sue. Made for Culinary Quest 2.
