Did you realize that Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away?! :)
This year I am more excited than usual... probably because I've discovered a passion for food!! I've been searching everywhere for new holiday recipes to try...
And the other day I found this one... It looked delicious, healthy, & very Thanksgiving-y. :)
Of course, I wanted to make a few modifications.
Glazed Carrots & Pearl Onions
- 2 packages baby carrots
- 3 tablespoons butter (I used EarthBalance)
- 1 package frozen pearl onions
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 ts. pepper
- 1/3 cup caramel sauce (I used this recipe)
- 1 tsp. dijon mustard
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add carrots; cook until almost tender, about 7 minutes. Drain; set aside.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring, until onions are heated through, 4-5 minutes.
Add carrots, caramel topping, and mustard. Cook, stirring, until carrots are tender and vegetables are glazed, about 5 minutes.
*Serve immediately or store in fridge.
