Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced carrots (about 12 large carrots)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger (or use 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha or your favourite hot sauce
  • sliced green onions for serving
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil.
  • Slice the carrots (crinkle cut or standard slices both work fine).
  • Add the carrots to the hot pan and toss them in the olive oil. Cover the pan with a lid. Let them cook for several minutes, then toss them again.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, the soy sauce, the garlic powder and ginger, and Sriracha.
  • After the carrots have cooked, covered for about 7 to 8 minutes, pour the honey mixture over them and toss them well in the mixture.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring every few minutes, for about 8-10 more minutes until the carrots become just fork tender.
  • Remove them from the heat, add some sliced green onions, and serve.

Notes

You can also use frozen sliced carrots for this recipe, as well as frozen baby carrots. Reduce the cooking time by a few minutes if using carrots from frozen.
