I had this at a restaurant, and, as always, I try and duplicate the dishes that I like. This is my version of these steamed baby carrots that are lightly coated in a sweet vanilla glaze.

I loved this recipe! The vinegar balances out a bit of the sweetness and vanilla really compliments the carrots. I have made this 2 times and the 4 of us who tried this thought they were great tasting carrots! Read More

It was alright but didn't end up as good as I would've liked. Could be due to my cooking skills but it's not quite my taste for carrots. Still was worth trying. Read More

I really enjoyed this. I ended up using regular carrots instead of baby since that is what I had on hand. I am not a huge fan of cooked carrots so I didn't steam them very long. Overall it was a very easy delicious recipe. Read More

Came across this recipe after returnng home after a trip to only a bag of baby carrots in the produce drawer! Otherwise I might not have looked for a carrot recipe but glad I did. Easy and we both thought they were good. Used the steamer insert but took 15-20 min til tender. Thanks for sharing this. Read More

I made this recipe because I had planned to have candied carrots for dinner but we were out of brown sugar. The only change I made was used regular carrots. These were good however my family prefers my other 2 carrot recipes(1 w/brown sugar 1 with apple juice) more. My 7 yr old that likes everything didn't eat these but my picky 12 yr old did. This is a good backup recipe but I think I will stick to my other recipes. Read More
