This is a standard side dish for us when we're serving an asian-inspired meal. It's also great with any grilled meat. The honey brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots and the ginger gives a bit of spice to balance the sweetness. Orange zest and juice gives a nice acidity to the dish. If you make this, it will likely become one of your staples.

  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled (about 3 bunches)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2-3 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp fresh minced ginger
  • 1 tsp orange zest, grated
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cut the carrots diagonally in 3/4 to 1 inch thick slices...about 5 cups in all. Put 1/2 cup water, butter, honey, 2 tsp kosher salt, and the ginger in a large skillet or saute pan and bring to a boil. Add the carrots, cover, and simmer on medium low for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to cook for 10-15 minutes until all the water evaporates.
  2. Add the orange juice and zest, tossing with the carrots, and simmer uncovered for about 5 more minutes until carrots are tender but still resistant when you bite, and sauce is reduced to a glaze. Sprinkle with the freshly ground pepper. Taste and add up to another tsp of Kosher if desired.

    My father is a great cook and he makes this dish more than any other vegetable. John and I cooked them for him on Father's Day and they were fantastic. You won't find a better recipe for ginger and carrots, and they are a fantastic combination!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
