  • 1 (16-ounce) bag whole carrots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • few tablespoons water-if needed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs


  •  In a skillet large enough to hold the carrots, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. When the oil begins to smoke lightly, add the carrots and season with salt and black pepper.  Stir the carrots to coat with the oil and seasonings. Continue to cook the carrots on medium-high, stirring them often, for 3-4 minutes 
  • Add brown sugar to the pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Add water, only if needed, about a tablespoon at a time, if the brown sugar begins to burn. Continue to cook until tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. When carrots are tender when pierced with a fork, add the butter and fresh herbs. Transfer the carrots to a serving bowl and ENJOY!
