  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the water generously and then add the carrots and cook for 6-7 minutes just until fork tender. Drain the carrots and then place into a large bowl.

  3. Pour the glaze over the carrots, toss to combine and then add the parsley if using. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

You can use regular size carrots for this recipe too! Just peel and cut into small pieces and follow the recipe as written. You might need to add a minute or two to the cooking time if the carrot pieces are a little larger.
