Orange Juice-Glazed Carrots


Here's what every mom needs: a trick to turn vegetables into something kids love. Add orange juice and a touch of sugar to a pan of carrots while they cook, and -- poof -- you've glazed them with flavor.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 pounds carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ cups freshly squeezed orange juice


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add carrots, sugar, and salt; cook until carrots are golden, about 10 minutes. Add juice; reduce heat. Simmer, partially covered, until carrots are tender, about 20 minutes. Cook, uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes more to thicken glaze. Serve warm.
