Savory Glazed Carrots Recipe With a Spirited Secret Ingredient (5 Ingredients, 15 Minutes) by Ann Marie Patitucci

Savory Glazed Carrots Recipe With a Spirited Secret Ingredient (5 Ingredients, 15 Minutes)

I love recipes with a secret, unexpected ingredient. In this savory glazed carrots recipe, the special ingredient is white wine. Seriously! 

If you look for glazed carrots recipes, you’ll find those that call for brown sugar, maple syrup, chicken broth, cinnamon, orange juice/zest, etc. White wine is less common, but it works well. Consider it the next time you’re looking for a new tasty side dish

This low-calorie, low-sodium carrots recipe requires only five ingredients: carrots, extra virgin olive oil, water, honey and your favorite white wine. The flavorful carrots cook up in about 10 minutes and require minimal prep. Now that's a perfect gluten-free side dish, if you ask me!

These spirited carrots are easy enough to make on a weekday, but fancy enough for a dinner party. Cheers!
