  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot or red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-in. slices
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon thawed frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add shallot; cook and stir until tender, 2-3 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Stir in carrots. Add brown sugar, water, orange juice concentrate, rosemary, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, until carrots are crisp-tender, 15-20 minutes. Uncover and cook until liquid is reduced by half, 1-2 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with fresh parsley.
