The side Dish blog (the home of side dish and salad collection recipes) invites you to try Balsamic-glazed carrots recipe. Enjoy quick and easy cooking recipes and learn how to make Balsamic-glazed carrots.

For a simply irresistible side, dish up these bright baby carrots that are bathed in a brown sugar-infused balsamic glaze.

Preparation Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 45 minutes

Ingredients (serves 10)

4 bunches baby (Dutch) carrots
100g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
30g butter, melted
2 tbs balsamic vinegar


1. Trim stems from the carrots. Scrub to remove any dirt. Peel.

2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the carrots in a large 3L (12-cup) capacity glass or ceramic ovenproof baking dish.

3. Combine the sugar, butter and vinegar in a small bowl. Pour over the carrots. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.

4. Bake in oven, tossing occasionally, for 45 minutes or until the carrots are tender.

5. Arrange on a serving platter. Drizzle over the glaze to serve.

Time plan tip: Prepare this recipe to the end of step 1 up to 1 day ahead. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Continue to the end of step 4, 4 hours ahead. Fifteen minutes before serving, return the baking dish to the oven (with the Crispy Roast Potatoes) to reheat, then continue from step 5.

Oven space tip: Cook the carrots on the top shelf of the oven while the ham is cooking on the lower shelf. Reheat in oven while the turkey is resting.
