  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill chopped
  • salt to taste


  • Peel and slice carrots into coins on an angle, about ¼ inch thick or less

  • Add carrots and saute until tender, about 8-10 minutes, stirring often
  • Add honey and dill and continue heating through, about 1-2 minutes more
  • Add salt to taste and stir well before serving
