Recipe Information

Total Time: 

15 minutes


4 servings, 1 cup each

An orange glaze brings out the sweetness in one of the kid-friendliest vegetables around.


  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 10-ounce bags shredded or julienne-cut carrots
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Whisk orange juice, broth and cornstarch in a small bowl. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots and cook, stirring constantly, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Stir the juice mixture and add to the carrots along with butter and salt. Cover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts and the carrots are tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
