While we may not be able to tell that spring is upon us, it is undeniable that Easter is just around the corner.
I think the unnaturally cool weather has made Easter sneak, quite surprisingly, from the throes of winter, to pounce, suddenly, on our doorstep.
And, all this sneaking and creeping may have left you realizing, with a slight panic, that Easter is, in fact, one week away and Easter dinner hasn’t been planned for yet.
Thankfully, the #SundaySupper crew has you covered with some fantastic breakfast recipes for Easter brunch, unique appetizers and sides for dinner, mouth-watering main dishes, and festive desserts.
These carrots are a springy twist on your classic glazed carrots. Lemon adds a light and refreshing brightness that accents the carrot’s natural sweetness. A little brown sugar and a pinch of nutmeg bring just enough of a warm caramel flavor to round out the flavors.
Best of all, this side dish is EASY. A quick saute and simmer, and these carrots are ready to go. They’re intended to be slightly crisp, so even on a buffet table, they won’t wind up mushy by the time seconds, or thirds, come around.
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 lb baby carrots
- ⅓ c hot water
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- ⅛ tsp nutmeg
- In a medium, non-stick frying pan with a lid melt butter over medium heat.
- Add carrots and saute 10 minutes, until slightly golden.
- Add remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer 8-10 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed.
Whether you are celebrating Easter, Passover, or just looking for menu inspiration, #SundaySupper has a great line up of recipes waiting for you this week. Thanks to this week’s sponsor: Carla over at Chocolate Moosey
