Sweet Baby Carrots

I am not a carrot fan though I always try to eat them…just in case they actually are good for your eyes.  Therefore, I am forever in search of carrot recipes that will disguise their taste.

This sweet baby carrot recipe is one that makes carrots acceptable to a non-carrot lover.  Those who like carrots tell me it’s a great recipe. I think the brown sugar and green onions provide such a different flavor that I forget I’m eating carrots.


  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 bunch of long green onions chopped or 2 chopped shallots
  • 1/8 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 Tbls of butter
  • 1 Tbls of vegetable oil



  • Clean and peel the carrots leaving the green leafy tops.
  • Par boil the carrots for 5 minutes.
  • In a small frying pan sauté onions in the oil and butter for 2 minutes.
  • Add carrots and sauté another 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with brown sugar and cook another minute.
  • Plate and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
