Carrots are an easy vegetable to love. Their flavor is mild and sweet, and they add beautiful bright orange color to your dinner plate. Even kids are generally pretty easy to sell on carrots. That’s especially true of this dish, in which they're slow cooked in butter and then tossed with sweet honey, spicy cinnamon, and fresh garden herbs.
This dish makes a perfect side for holiday meals like Thanksgiving, Passover, or Easter. Serve it alongside roasted turkey, baked ham, roast beef, or a braised leg of lamb. But don’t save it for special occasions! It’s easy enough to make on a regular weekday.
