How To Cook Honey Glazed Carrots

Carrots are one of the healthiest root vegetables that deliver essential nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamin A and lutein. While orange carrots are the most common type, there are purple and yellow varieties as well. Carrots can be eaten raw, steamed or roasted, and make a great addition to roasts and stews. Carrots are a great ingredient to practice your knife skills with as well. A timeless side dish is carrots julienne, which requires cutting the carrot into long, thin strips. They can also be thinly shaved or sliced as a salad topping for added nutrition and flavor. The subtle sweetness in carrots also lends itself well to dishes like carrot cake or a traditional pudding-like Indian dessert called Gaajar Kaa Halwaa. In this video, Chef Mark provides an online cooking lesson using carrots. Experiment with this nutritious, versatile ingredient in some of your favorite dishes or allow it to stand alone. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
