This is a fabulous recipe; simple and fast! I have made this five times now. Even my hard to please mother in law couldn't complain about it! The best thing to do is steam the vegetables in a steamer basket. Put the carrots in first until they are about 3/4 of the way done, then add the pea pods to the steamer basket. As soon as the pea pods are in, take a small sauce pan and make the glaze. Usually the vegetables are ready right when I get the glaze finished. Then just dump the vegetables into the sauce pan, stir lightly so you don't break apart the pea pods, and Voila! I can't thank you enough for this wonderful recipe. :-) Read More

A bit on the bland side - but probably good served with a strong-flavored dish. Read More

This was great and beautiful too! I used baby carrots steamed for about 7-8 minutes (not boiled) then added the pea pods and only steamed for 45 seconds. This was a perfect amount of time. Then continued with the recipe leaving out the cornstarch. This went great with garlic salmon and brown/wild rice. My kids (aged 4 and 1) loved this too! Read More

A good way to prepare carrots and pea pods. After reading the reviews I cut the butter back to 1 tbsp which was plenty. I also added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar and a grind of salt and pepper. Great flavour. Read More

This recipe is really good. I used the tiny sweet baby carrots so no need to slice or chop. Tossed a few sliced waterchestnuts. Next time I will try a little horseradish with this recipe. Very yummy as is though. Thanks for another tasty treat Michele. Read More

I love this recipe, thanks so much for posting it Michele. I made it for the first time as a healthy lunch for myself. 2 carrots and 4 large handfuls of sugar snap peas were perfect. I feel so healthy!! I used enough butter to coat the bottom of the saucepan. I didn't find the honey overpowering (I used 2 tablespoons as per recipe) but added some kick with 1 and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder in with the cornflour. I sprinkled celery salt over the dish just before serving as well. This is a great meal on its own!! Read More

I really liked these! I used "tastefully simple" (a product from a taste testing party) honey mustard and WOW was I impressed with the outcome. It was a great along side of a pork roast. Thanks Michele I'll be using this again! Read More

THis was a great glaze - especially on the carrots. I wasn't crazy about it on the pea pods - but maybe that's just because I prefer carrots. I will keep this recipe and just use carrots next time!:) Read More

AWESOME!!!!! I used 2 cups of whole baby carrots and a sandwich baggie full of snow peas because that's what I had on hand. It was very easy and tasted wonderful with our grilled meal. Read More
