Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


6 servings

Barbara Schindler of Napoleon, OH uses lemon-lime soda to really perk up the flavor of carrots. This bright side-dish is fast, hands-off, and notes Barbara, “it's a great way to get your children to eat carrots.”


  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cups frozen sliced carrots
  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in the carrots, soda, sugar, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 7-10 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender. Serve with a slotted spoon.
