What is your favorite holiday side dish? It doesn`t feel like Thanksgiving to me without Nutmeg Lemon Glazed Carrots. The tangy flavor of the carrots makes them delicious with mashed potatoes or yams and they`re quick and easy to make.
- 2 cups carrots peeled and sliced in 1/4rounds
- 2 tablespoons butter (I`m thinking of trying Earth Balance this year)
- 1 1/2 tsps carrot juice or boiling water
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Boil or steam carrots until al dente and save 1 1/2 tsps of carrot water. In small saucepan, mix together carrot water, butter, lemon juice, and nutmeg. Cook on low heat until butter is melted. Pour glaze over cooked carrots and stir until carrots are coated.
