Tender glazed carrots with honey & balsamic vinegar pan-roasted along with fresh thyme. An easy one-pan side dish that only takes 20 minutes. Easy enough for a weeknight dinner and fancy enough to serve for a dinner party. Pairs perfectly with turkey, chicken and lamb and duck.
Wash and trim the carrots and ensure all pieces are similar in size. If some pieces are bigger simply slice thicker carrots in half lengthwise.
In a large pan over medium heat add the carrots, honey, thyme, water and balsamic vinegar. Cover with a lid and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove lid add a pinch of salt and stir. Let simmer for another 10 minutes or until carrots are fork-tender. Serve immediately.
