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!

They were not any more flavourful than plain carrots.

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.

Simple to make with ingredients that are usually on-hand. Even my daughter who is not a big fan of carrots enjoyed it.

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.

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.

I just made these for my job and they were a HIT! Everybody loved them. The only thing I did different was I used whole carrots and cut them into pieces and boiled them in water for about 15 mins appose to steaming them (my carrots seemed a little hard). Great quick recipe for any meal addition. Highly recommend.
